My Friend Was Visiting And Accidentally Burned A Hole In The Carpet With A Cigarette. The Landlord Says I Am Responsible For The Damage.

The tenant is responsible for damages to the premises caused by the tenant and the tenant`s household members, guests and visitors. The landlord can either deduct the charges from your security deposit when you move out or can present you with a bill at the time the repairs are made. To determine the reasonableness of the charges, you could talk with reliable sources in the repair business and get estimates from them to compare to the amount charged by the landlord.
