Landlord trying to send me to collection

I rented a townhouse for 3 years. In that time, the landlord never cleaned the carpet or offered to paint. Now he wants to charge me $2000.00 for paint and $2000 for carpet that he says I ruined (normal wear and tear stains) no rips. He never took me to court but he sent me a letter stating that if I do not pay he will take me to a collection agency. Is he allowed to refer my account to a collection agency if he does not have a judgement? How do I counter this?
