Default Cost of gut-renovation for 2BR apartment

Okay, so some "tenants" destroyed an apartment completely --- walls, floors, doors, windows,appliances, etc. The apartment is a 2BR, approximately 650-700 sq ft. The tenants are out now and repairs need to be made.

The walls would have to be replaced & painted. The floors would have to be redone, then tiled or carpeted, windows would have to be replaced as well as all closet doors (2 double closets, 3 regular closets) and appliances (apt sized fridge and electric stove).

Does anyone have any idea of what the cost would be?

Thanks!

I can usually do a 2 Bedroom apt for about $15K and that includes new appliances (or newish ones gotten on Craigslist), retiling bathrooms, new countertops, total wall patches & painting, new floors, new faucets, windows, new light fixtures, replacing several doors.

Thanks for your response --- that's what I was thinking (around 15-20K). These "people" completely destroyed the place from top to bottom. My friends own the place and are at a loss as to what to do. They can't sue the dirtbags because, of course, they have no money and are living off the government. I told them they're just going to have to get it fixed and hopefully get better tenants next time (and check on them periodically!!!)

No "hopefully" about it. They seriously need to learn to screen tenants or hire a property management company.

^^^ exactly. They also need to periodically check on the tenants and the apartment. Drop by unexpectedly or have inspections or something.

The original poster spent a great deal of money on his apartment then he got evicted by his landlord and that was many years ago. Check the date of the post.
