Pay for Carpet replacement because of one stane.

Posted by Craig on October 22, 2001 at 15:57:44:

I liked in Wisconsin, Waukesha County.

Two years ago I reneted an apartment which allowed cats. There was a pet deposit of $250 plus the standard $700 deposit. The Pet agreement states "If the inspector detects Animal Urine the resident will be responsible for 100% of replacement of the carpet and pad of the entire apartment." I reciently recieved a bill from my old landlord for $1317.00 including entire carpet replacement at $1158 and some Floor Sealing (There's nothing about this on the lease and there's no reciept for this in the papers he sent).

First of all I don't feel that it's fair for him to be able to replace the entire carpet and charge me for it because of a stain in one room. Secondly, if the Floor Sealing isn't on the lease and no reciept is presented for it can I dispute it?

I only have 30 days from reciept of this notice to file a claim, or at least I've heard. So if anyone has any information at all, please post it.
