Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
Hello and welcome. I am working on your answer and will be right back!
Landlord cannot shift this cost to a tenant. No basis for it unless you damaged them to the point they need to be replaced and even then need to get credit for fact they were not new. If landlord wrongly deducts, consider small claims court, avoiding the legal fees.
Let me know if that is fast and clear.
I see no basis to their claim, especially given your facts
It makes no difference to the reply. Landlord is just wrongly trying to make you pay for an upgrade
Courts wont appreciate it. Kindly rate me 5 stars
Very welcome. Thank you
