If you were renting a home and noticed that nails and tack strips were sticking out of the carpet where you and your family were getting cuts on your feet, would you expect the landlord to repair/replace the carpet? Or would you do it yourself and pay for the repair/replacement yourself?
Note: We've lived in the house for 3 days so it's not something we caused.
UPDATE: Landlord came by yesterday morning to look at the carpet and was appalled and embarrassed. She had no idea that the previous tenant had nailed down carpet throughout the two bedrooms. She manages so many homes that she doesn't always get to view them all before a new tenant moves in. She is having the carpet replaced this weekend. She apologized for being unprofessional and is giving us a discount on next months rent. She felt terrible that we had cut our feet and were avoiding these rooms until the problem was solved.
