My Mom Lived in Ewing Independent Living for 9yrs

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

New Jersey she passed and they are making her pay for carpet. I Cleaned the apartment and had professional cleaning people to come in.

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

No I spoke with the Owner of the building and she referred me to management.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Can they do this

My deepest sympathies for your loss.

No, they cannot charge her estate for the carpet if the carpet just had ordinary wear and tear. They cannot charge her for basically using the carpet as intended for nine years. So, you can refuse to pay for the charge and let them take the matter to Court.

Goodluck with your case,

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
