I have a tenant who has broken tiles in a bathroom while using the shower.  The tiles show mold behind the wall and I'm trying to find out who is responsible for the repairs for the shower, the tenants or the landlord?

How extensive is the damage?  Just a few tiles or several broke out?  Does it appear as though they have came loose due to age and water getting behind them and the mold grew to loosen them or does it appear they were intentionally broke off?

If the damage was intentional, then the tenant would pay but you may need to reduce for age and not charge the full replacement cost (I say may here as this could be a judgment call.)

If they came loose due to age, normal wear & tear, then you cannot charge them and the expense would be yours.
