Check the Better Business Bureau''s online business listings for the leasing company's name (ask the landlord if they have a relationship with the BBB). Invite some friends over for a few bottles of wine (or beer) and walk around the apartment, critiquing the hell out of it. If you have a digital camera, take pictures of every room, every blemish. When you have gathered all of this info, written and photographic, do a walk-through with the landlord and make sure that they sign off on the list. Nothing is more terrifying for a landlord than walking into an apartment and seeing that your 13 cats have made the place damn near unlivable. If you have a problem with any part of the apartment, if something breaks from normal wear and tear, the landlord is obliged to pay for it.
On the other hand, if the carpet was five years old when you moved in and six years old when you moved out, you should only be liable for the amortized value of the carpet.Having a copy of the landlord-tenant law on your coffee table during the landlord walk-through is a not-so-subtle way of showing that you're not to be messed with!I moved out of an apartment, and was given a list of things to clean after their first walk-through (totally ridiculous things, but I complied).I was then sent a bill for about 0 for cleaning the fridge (which I did), and leaving crumbs under the stove (in an area I didn't even realize existed), and I'm a bit foggy now, but there may have been one or two other items.I sent a written response stating that I had cleaned the areas originally pointed out, and that the oven was not brought up in the origial discussion.
