I moved into a house a year ago and upon moving in the carpet had stains and was not anywhere near perfect, in fact it is probably 10 year old carpet as stated by the owner. We somehow made a couple of stains from living there, about 3 smaller ones all of which can not be brought up and I understand we should be liable for something but she is wanting us to pay for the whole living to be replaced with brand new carpet.
Is there anything we can do about aruing the fact we should be responsible for a portion of the carpet since it is old and already had stains and already probably should have been replaced by now? What are my options?

ORIGINAL COST OF CARPET $1,500
Expected life of carpet : 15 years
