What is the name of your state? KS
What is the standard rate of depreciation on carpeting? I moved into an apartment 10 months ago and the carpet was fairly old and worn at move in. I noted this in my inspection form. Since then the probelms that I noted have gotten worse and worse I know that I will probably be held responsible for some of the damage but what kind of depreciation rate is standard with carpeting? Basically the damage is fraying at the edges small stains that where there when I moved in and also a couple of new stains. In total if I were to have the oppurtunity to do it again I would not have moved in without them replacing the carpet but since I did and I know that is has been over five years since the carpet was replaced I am curious how much they could actually charge to fix the problem?
Thanks for any reply.
PS someone told me that carpetting depreciates at a rate of like 25% every year is that true?
