Vandalism

2 posts in this topic

I live in Denver, CO. My apartment was broken into through a bedroom window. The suspect apparently threw a brick through the window, entered the premises, and stole various items. Now my landlord is charging me for replacement of the window. Is this legal?

The landlord has no lawful reason to expect you to pay for someone else breaking your window. I'd write the landlord a letter saying I won't pay for a third party's bad acts/damage to the place, and note that if he applies any rent received to this charge and issues you a notice to quit or pay because he did such a thing that I'll be filing a petition in the local landlord-tenant court about it. (Even if by some chance he has a provision in a lease that says he's free to do this, a court won't find it enforceable.)
