Ethical concerns... I would recommend that all new renters video tape or take pictures of the condition of the carpet of your new apt with a member of the staff during an initial walk through. Ask how old the carpet is and what the replacement cycle or plan is for the carpet in your apt. then have that staff member formally acknowledge what was stated. Secondly, do not miss the walkthrough when you move out. Doing so guarantees that the carpet will be replaced at your expense. Professional cleaning of carpets before moving out will not be enough to avoid this expense. Live and learn.
