That's not right at all. I would fight them on it. Stand your ground and don't give them an inch. Do you have any pictures of the state of these things at the time you moved out? In the future, it's always wise to take lots of pictures of an apartment right before you move in and right after you move out.

You would have had to have damaged the appliances and toilets beyond repair before the LL can charge you for new ones. Even then, they can only charge you a pro-rated amount based on the amount of life left in the appliances. I'm not sure if toilets have a "life" since they don't wear out (to my knowledge), so you would probably be responsible for the entire amount on them.

were you offered an exit walk through? THis is the law. if offered and you ignored it, you have a problem. If not offered it, you can ignore their bill and just go to court and sue for damages. can guide further

These are state laws - not federal and of course it also depends on how the lease is written. But almost always a tenant is not charged for anything that would be normal wear and tear. It would have to be something you did to hurt them.
