No, they simply provide a residence in the condition as rented. Some States have Renters Laws which are to prevent a Slumlord of someone that charges a normal rent for substandard living environment but this usually relates to substandard conditions such as a run-down building, plumbing, electrical and related infrastructure and trash issues. You would need to check with the Slumlord requirements for the State you live to find out these laws.
In the state of ohio.... The landlord must put new carpet in every two years. They can tell you they will go up on your rent put they say that to try and make you change your mind about new carpet. But they have to abide my the law and put in new carpet every two years regardless of what they say.
I live in california I've been in my apartment for 6 years the carpent was new when I moved in but it was the cheapest carpet you can buy. I have my own carpet cleaner. The carpet just needs to be replaced. So my question to you is how long do you have to live in a apartment before you can ask the landlord to replace the carpet?
It all depends on the condition of the carpet and paint used. But such things must be reviewed on annual basis. If your paint has started cracking up, you must arrange for new paint. For carpets, you can make use of industrial cleaners, that might give a few extra months to your carpet. And if that does not work you would have to change it.
I have a 15 or older carpet in my apartment its so old they stopped making it. I was told that the were to be changed every five to ten years. Can my landlord get in trouble for not changing it and can any one get sick for having such a old carpet
I have been renting the same apartment for over 20 years and there have been three different owners of my complex within that time. The carpet is in dyer need to be changed, they will change it but they will also go up on my rent. Can they do this, I have been here 20+ years and there are some things that really need to be done in this unit. Such as new toilet, new vanity in the bathroom, and carpeting.
What can I do to have this work done?
No you have the carpet cleaned,you can ask the landlord about paint but once you rent a house,apartment you keep it clean just as you would your home if you owned it......good luck
No not while you are living in the apartment. Once someone has move out yes of course they would have to change the carpet and paint the wall.
