I want new carpet. I am a good tenant and have lived here since 2005. Is my landlord under any obligation to replace anything after a certain amount of time?
I don't know of any legal requirement to replace carpet or paint. Legal requirements say it must be safe and vermin free. Most landlords don't think about replacing carpet until a tenant moves out. If it's just dirty, it could be cleaned; that's your responsibility. But if you think it needs replacing, you can ask your landlord.
