We rented a house for 17 years. We never looked in the attic, we housed boxes up there. When we recently moved the landlord found junk that is not ours, and wants to charge for disposal. Carpets need replaced, and some floor damage reports. Closet doors were never on, but wants use to replace. We left the house clean, and was out by date of notice. He never checked the attic, 17 years ago I didnt write up a list of needed repairs, darn. Now he wants money for all repairs that is just from family living. He never cleaned the carpet. What rights do we have. I will pay what is just. Thanks Jodi Lane
JA: Because real estate
law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: Oregon, Portland
JA: Has any paperwork been filed?
Customer: No waiting to get the bill from him. Just wanted to know how to handle.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: I want to take care of items I need to I'm not trying to get out of paying for 2 windows and a slider that are damaged. But not sure what my rights are after 17 yrs of a good rental history.
