I see you are facing the age old problem better known as
" power trips " from would be landlords. You are living in a basement of a home and the owners of the house are technically known as " landlords " under the eyes of the law.
But in reality they are a bunch of low life animals that are simply trying to intimidate you. They have succumb to an age old need.... " their private need for the feeling of power over another person ".
The answer to this riddle is to bring in a rug cleaner who will vacuum and shampoo the rugs nice and clean. Get a bill from him and also a written statement as to his impression of the rugs...clean, dirty, torn, worn etc.... Then take several pictures of the rugs. Also be advised that all leases assume that there will be what as known as " normal wear and tear "to be allowed for and that no legal consequences should follow for such...
Now you have to succumb to the age old need.... " the need to let other people know that you are not a doormat and won't allow them to walk on you ".... That is more important than the first age old problem of the need for power because that one can only corrupt us as a human race........ Use your last month rent for security because these people are the type that if you never lived in the apartment...they would keep the security..... Using the real old standby known as...
" the check is in the mail " Stand up for your rights, teach your children the same or go get sterilized because we have far too many weak and spinless people/tenants in this world already.
