NO you cant force the landlord into replacing the carpet.

BUT what you can try and do is to EMBARRASS him into replacing it, BY getting a digital camera or a throw away one and giving him COPIES of the pictures and making sure its in your lease you signed that the carpet has holes and you have the pictures to prove it.

Then he cant keep your security deposit when you leave. I guess this can be called: cover your asssssss.

: What are my rights to replace a 9 year old carpet in an apartment in New Jersey? I am signing a lease at a new apartment, but the carpet is old and has a hole in the stairs. Is the landlord obligated to change the carpet? It's the high traffic carpet.
