Getting Carpet Replaced
I'm posting this to help out my grandmother. She's been a tenant at her current apartment for 11 years. In that time, the carpet has become VERY worn and VERY dirty. As you can imagine, it's not high quality. Anyhow, the landlords don't want to replace it (or anything else in the apartment for that matter). Now all the new tenants have brand new carpet, new cabinets, new appliances - and are paying less rent! Is there anything she can do? I've been researching tenant/landlord regulations, but haven't found anything specifically relating to this.
