NO Pre-Walk through 2 weeks before end of lease, Can I still go after damages?

By admin

I live out od State, and our tenants in CA asked to have a pre-walkthough. We were unable to come out 2 weeks prior. When we showed up for our FINAL walkthough on the last day of the lease, the house was a mess, and we noticed our wood floors had some damage to them. It appeared that there was some water damage to them.  Also, when we had our carpets professionally cleaned, the carpet cleaner said there was about 60 spots od urine stains in the carpet. When we did the final walkthrough, itwas not apparent, but the carpet cleaner said it has been ruined by a small dog. Can I go after him if I didn’t have the 2 week prior pre-walkthrough??? We told him that we wanted all the furniture out so we can see the house. There is a lot of things you can not see with all the stuff in the house. Please HELP!!
