Help! Lease expired in March, got a call today!

Posted by Tom on June 13, 1997 at 12:33:57:

If anyone could offer advice, i'd be forever grateful. My landlord called
me up this morning and informed me that my lease expired in March, after
researching it, since I am not in NYC, then all that happened was I was
converted to Month-to-month. Now for the problem...

I had agreed going into the lease that I would replace the Downstairs
carpet by the time we moved out in return for the rental price of $600.00
instead of $650.00. I have not replaced it yet, and was not planning on
moving anytime soon. When she called she asked me if I replaced it yet, and
I told her that I didn't. She is now telling me that it has to be carpet
that equals the amount of rent savings that I had, however the ONLY thing
we initially agreed upon was new carpet, no stipulations at all. Am I
mistaken in my assumption that a quality carpet, that may be adequate
is not enough? We are model tenents, and I am upset more at the principle
of this than anything else. We have added many things to the Townhouse
(screen doors, etc) and feel that this is very unfair. If I were to put in
a carpet that cost less than my rent savings, would they be able to hold
the difference from my security deposit?
