In case anyone is jumping to the wrong conclusion here, I meant she made really good money at her job (not from me). She was very attractive, and a nice person.

Re: are charges for rental property damage based on "useful life"?

Someday I'm going to move out of the house I've been renting, and I'm trying to figure out what I can expect to owe (if anything) for damages. I know how it works in the US, but I don't know about Chile. For example, if I completely destroy one of those cheap bathroom cabinets with a typical useful...

Re: are charges for rental property damage based on "useful life"?

That was 150 mil for a 3-door cabinet because the original cabinet doors are no longer available and have to be replicated using some special paint job (which is actually almost indistinguishable from the original -- no, I don't think they're having me on...). Was that 150 for the cabinets + instal...

Re: are charges for rental property damage based on "useful life"?

I have not really had problems with deposit money being returned to me from 3 rental properties in the last 3 years. I may have been lucky, and I may be a tad niaive, but I believe that if you as the tenant are decent with the landlord, pay your rent on time, look after the property, admit damage w...

That might help. If I could find the actual laws, even if they aren't exactly followed, that should tell me what I need to know. Does anyone know where I could find them?

Re: are charges for rental property damage based on "useful life"?

I just split the cost of replacing a kitchen cabinet (that turned out to be a bit of a pain) ruined by a tap that had been left dripping 50/50 with the tenant, but that's just me. When I have rented here outside my employer's premises I have got all my deposit back on one occasion and none of it (w...

Re: are charges for rental property damage based on "useful life"?

If it really bugs you, about 99% of the time, as you said, the cheap cabinets, flooring, whatever is still sold at sodimac or easy (like exactly the same product, very little selection in chile) and can be replaced pretty cheaply. If I could find the exact same stuff around here, that would work. B...

Re: are charges for rental property damage based on "useful life"?

Okay let me expand----traditionally the gringo, be it in the US or not, will respond to questions and bleed out all the information to what is asked of him or her---and then the course is set and whether or not you are responsible or not----so don't offer any information---don't respond except to s...

Re: are charges for rental property damage based on "useful life"?

While I see your premise and direction let's just cut it off there and really what you should do is move out before you are turn in the apartment and take everything with you damaged or not and then what damage is there?----this is the traditional approach by the majority of Chileans----I would sto...
