Etat de lieu - getting IN

Hi -

I am new to the forum, so please excuse if I have missed a relevant post. I have seen some threads in relation to the etat the lieu, the sanity check on the apartment as performed when a tenant leaves the apartment. My question would actually be, on the contrary, in relation to the etat de lieu as new tenant: I have seen an apartment and I liked it: at the time, it was furnished by the current tenants. Then I signed the contract, paid the deposit, and I am about to attend the etat de lieu to check the apartment cleaned and empty. I had a chance to go to the apartment with the current tenants before the etat de lieu, and see it already empty. I then noticed some spots and little snatches on the moquette that were caused by the sofas I had seen placed over there. Question then is: as new tenant, can I ask the landlord to fix it, or remove the damaged moquette? What are my rights that I can enforce as new tenant? Can I be very tough or should I just surrend and get the apartment as it is?

Hello Matte26 and welcome to EF.

Yes you can have it fixed. During the etat de lieu pinpoint to your regie that it should be repaired, it will be attended by your concierge who lives in the same building.
