I have lived in an apartment for roughly 5 years and am moving out this month. My manager has asked me to remove my own carpet and carry it to the dumpster. The reason he asked me to do this is that no dogs are allowed at the property, only cats, and I had a dog which he knew about. I also subletted the apartment for a year to a guy with a dog, which the manager knew about.
The carpet was old, aweful, and smelly when I moved in and we requested it to be replaced which he wouldnt do but did state it would be replaced when we move out. He says that his maintenance man will not remove carpet where dogs have lived and he will have to charge me to remove it, even though the maintenance guy will remove carpet where cats have lived. His request was to remove all the carpet and sweep the dust under it or I will be charged for the removal. Can he make me do this or should I do it because I had a dog when I wasnt supposed to?
