Message:

Tenant broke the door on a gas oven. The glass and handle came apart. I looked on the internet to get the parts, thought about the time to bolt it back together and just decided to get a new stove and charge the deposit. I just got this stove a year ago used for $250 and it's just quicker and easier to do that again rather than take time to mess around with the door. Replacing the door would be cheaper, but takes time. Of course, the tenant had the opportunity to do this before exiting.

How concerned are you about trying to preserve the tenant's SD by being economically efficient? If it were my money, I'd probably try to replace the door, but I have more time to deal with a broken door on my personal stove than I do with an apartment. --208.54.xx.xxx

Me? Not at all worried at preserving their SD. They knew it was broken, they could have watched the same YOUTUBE videio you did and ordered the same parts.

DH? He discounts his own time to nothing. --50.82.xxx.xx

damage you described-- I wouldn't preserve anything. Get a new one and bill them. It just doesn't pay to TRY TO HELP THEM-- IT COMES BACK AND BITES U. --99.103.xxx.xxx

I wouldn't worry about it. Lucky finding a cheap fix. I had a tenant get into a boxing match with one of my fridges. Both doors were rough with Knuckle dents. To replace both doors would've been $1100. A new fridge is $500.

I put a dry erase board on the freezer door for $10 plus the cost of some command strips.

I made sure to show the cost of fully replacing the doors as an option that I chose not to do when returning the SD deposit accounting though. (This case a CV hearing). Wasn't worth replacing the fridge and charging this guy, because I won't see any $.

I won't charge for some things that are nonsense items too. I'll list them and write "no charge" next to it. Typically when hammering a deposit, but not exhausting it completely. I tend to think it helps to keep them from calling and arguing any deductions. Not that I would engage any dispute anyway. Argue all they want, if it ended up in court, I'd add in the other fees.

If someone damages things beyond the deposit, I add every nickel to the list & send a bill.

Chess game. --50.107.xxx.xx

How do you say that the tenant broke the oven door? it fell apart during use. You are lucky it did not hurt the tenant. --173.61.xxx.xx

Oh Ally. If it broke during use, the tenant would've been on the phone in about 3 seconds flat kicking and screaming about living in a run down slum. They absolutely broke it, that's why he didn't find out until after they moved out. --50.107.xxx.xx

Message:

Agree with NE.. I had tenant report right away, I would assess the tenants and situation and eat the cost.. (oven door is about $100 and an hour of your time)

If they don't report, they are responsible. --71.232.xxx.xxx

Ally I've said this before here-- are you really a LL? With rentals and tenants?

Yea so lucky tenant didn't get burned? My familys been using stoves for a total of 400 years and have had 60 stoves-- never had any break like expained here or as tenants describe. They abuse stuff cause they weren't raised to respect others things-- Ally really? --99.103.xxx.xxx

Iím not economical with their SD at all, they broke it, they could have fixed it but couldnít be bothered. Why should I waste my valuable time to save them money. --174.199.xx.xx

Message:

As long as there is enough deposit to cover it, let them pay for a pro repair or replacement. I'll try to save $ if I know it will come out of my pocket, when it's reasonable to do so. --68.10.xxx.x

A good landlord would not let his tenants know he/she has lottery winnings to waste on a oven door, charge the tenant for damages in the next rent cycle - took them 3 - 5 minutes to break the door, allow them a couple weeks to pay for it.
