We have recently moved out of a rental property. Unfortunately, in the last week we stained the lounge room carpet with cordial. We understand that it is our responsibility to get it fixed, and the rental manager is not willing to get a patch job, which is about $150-$200, and is wanting to re-carpet the whole room at a cost of $2500. In our lease condition report, it states the carpet is already damaged by water before we moved in, and I'm not sure it's entirely fair to put the whole re-carpeting cost on us when it was already in a poor condition. Your advice would be much appreciated.
