Legal Question in Landlord & Tenant Law in Virginia

I live in the state of Virginia. I recently moved out of a rental property where the carpet needed to be replaced due to a leak in the permanently installed cooling unit owned by the property. I am now being charged for that replacement. Am I responsible to cover the loss even though the damage was not due to anything I had done? and do I have the right to view the completed work and any related receipts?

If this carpeting was replaced soley for the reason mentioned in your question,

then you as the former tenant should not be charged for the replacement (my opinion).
