Landlord and Tenant Rights and Responsibilities

questions & answers

Question: My apartment is partially furnished, a bed. The bed is used and very uncomfortable. The mattress is old. What can I do to get a new bed? Is it legal for my landlord to keep used mattresses in his units? Also, he says that if I buy a new mattress, I have to leave it there when I move out. The lease stipulates that I cannot remove or modify the existing furniture. So can he do this ?

Answer: You can buy and keep your new mattress when you move. You need to leave the old mattress there since it is the landlord's property but you don't have to use it. There is nothing I am aware of that requires the landlord to provide you with a bed you find comfortable. You may want to move out or get a different mattress.
