What is normal wear and tear?

"Normal wear and tear" is a subjective assessment based on the total time a tenant occupied the premises, the condition of the unit on move-in, the use of the premises, and whether pets were allowed. The longer a tenant lives in a rental unit, the more likely it is that normal wear and tear will occur. Examples of normal wear and tear include worn floors, chipped paint, dirty air filters and broken hinges.
