I would just replace them. I doubt they did it on purpose or through neglect. --76.120.xx.xx

I put in brand new toilet seats for new tenants. They don't cost that much and the new ones have quick snap on hinges.

Because they cost so little, just replace them yourself. You will have a hard time proving that they caused damage. --108.4.xxx.xx

They may cost 6.00 each but -- on their agreed to pricing the seats are 25.00 each when billed. How do you know the new tenants seat wasn't broken from last tenant? I would let that one go-- but bill the other tenant-- and waive install fee of 45.00. This time.

Jeff your quick to "just replace". 25.00 each and 45 each for labor. $140.00. --99.103.xxx.xxx

We buy 'em for $25 each. If that's all that needs to be done I do those myself in about 5 minutes. --76.120.xx.xx

As a licensed plumbing contractor I've seen toilet seats sell from $5 to $50, some with cheep hinges and mounting hardware to some that are of good quality. If your tenants toilet seat came apart, then is was of poor quality or improperly installed. In either case, the landlord is responsible. --47.156.xx.xx

You can't prove negligence or intentional misuse. What are you going to do? ask the tenant to step on a scale?

Just replace the seats with a smile. --99.59.x.xxx

I don't quite agree with that Robert. I have a 350# tenant who is on his 3rd seat, Not sure what he does to them and I don't want to know. I charged him $45 for last one to break. --216.23.xxx.xx

Doesn't happen in my own home but oddly enough the seats i put in rentals do not last as long. Bit frustrating forsure. Its a cheap fix, if it was me I would win them over by installing a new seat at both places. Goodwill can go along way. --99.203.xx.xxx

I too have had tenants that destroyed many toilet seats. They would sit on the closed toilet seat all of the time to put on boots and play a tug-a-war putting pressure on the seat, forwards, backwards and to the side.

Until I installed a heavy duty metal hinge, their weight would twist and bend the old plastic hinges and mountings causing things to break. --47.156.xx.xx

The new thing is to sit facing the tank

and then ride it like a Shetland Pony.

Should have stuck with the Outhouses.

Strange...seats in our rentals never break but they do get loose at times. If the paint wears through then we replace. --73.158.xxx.xxx

There cheep enough I would just replace them unless it becomes a habitual habit with a tenant then I would start charging that tenant. --73.120.xx.xxx

I try to replace the toilet seats only when needed (something is broke). I found the Church Plastic Elongated Slow-Close Toilet Seat at Lowe's for $39.98. They are very heavy duty plastic and look like they will hold up for a very long time. --99.165.xx.xxx
