Hi, I am ending my rental lease after staying in the unit for 4 years. We finally saved enough to own our own condo
. They agent and owners came today for defect inspection visit and sent me a message that I am to replace 1 piece of porcelain tile in living room that has a hairline crack, to repaint the unit and hire a professional cleaning service prior to handover.
I have been here for almost 10 years. It is unheard of that I have to repaint the walls or engaged professional cleaning crew. The hairline crack on tile is bizarre to me, and I am unsure if it was an original defect. The lease contract in any case did not state for repainting or engagement of professional cleaner. But the back and forth of messaging is causing me enough of stress on TOP of managing the ongoing renovation works and my real work.
They came and turned on all lights at the same time and caused the main breaker box to tripped. That to me is the Owner’s electrical subcontractor shoddy work but that they too expect me to fix it.
The glass stove was original with the condo and I missed the mass replacement works because of work travels. 3 years later the glas start to crack and I do not think that I should in anyway responsible for a product defect, my own fault is I missed the recall.
In addition the Rental agent is related to the Owner. So I feel she is not behaving professional and fairly.
Can anyone help if they have encounter such a overtly lofty request from their past rental experience?
