Stick to the $125, let them prove in court it was more....and make sure you get them to sign a release....such as
The $125 payment for the damaged carpet is for payment in FULL of any and all claims re your tenancy at........(address)
: : The property manager called me back and said that I don't have to replace the whole carpet. only the hallway and livingroom which comes out to 400 dollars. what should i do now? tell them i will pay half?
: Let me see if I understend this: You have paid the rent for the last month you will be there, so you're all paid up as far as rent is concerned. LL does not have a security deposit from you. LL is claiming damages anywhere from $400's to $1300 for the rug, and LL doesn't have a security deposit. HA HA! LL will have to sue you outright-and you will probably be responsible for just patching the rug and fixing the door.
: : Right. Get the written estimates, take lots of pix, ask her what she wants, then make her an offer. When she accepts, have her sign a general release.
