We rented a room with access to the kitchen, laundry, living room --included internet, it was fully furnished and they had everything including a juicer to someone in September 2017 with the understanding that she would give the space back in the same condition and keep the space she used in the same condition and if not she would have to pay to fix or replace. When she started the stove, she lied down, fell asleep and when she awoke from smoke, she put the pot on the laminate counter top burning hole right through it. The lease was very clear -- it was low provided that they stay for 8 months -- She did not pay for the month of December and has not returned to get her stuff and did not pay for damages. She is very aggressive
