When I moved into my apartment five months ago the carpet in one bedroom was stained in several places. I told the landlord I'd take the apartment if he changed the rug or paid to let me do it (I know how). He said I could change it myself and spend up to $300 on the carpet and that he would repay me withing one month of doing it. So I took the apartment and bought carpet and installed it. Now he wont pay me and he says I better not deduct it from the rent because he had a certificate of occupancy so the carpet did not need to be replaced. This guy is a liar and I want to get my money back. But now I want to know if what he did could get me triple damages because he is being unfair and deceptive? What do you think?
