Legal Question

Asked on: 10/25/11, 6:16 pm

I recently moved out of an apartment. During move-in I completed a move-in checklist documenting any damages to the apartment including carpet issues. I returned these documents to apartment management to keep in my file. I complained several times in person to apartment management about the carpet. I have several witness's that can state the carpet condition upon move in and move out. Having been moved about for about a month now i recently received a letter stating i was being charged for the replacement of the carpet. I expressed my concern to the regional manager who indicated via email that there was no move-in checklist in the file. Can the apartment complex legally charge me for replacement if they lost the documentation we provided?
