Can apartment management charge me for replacing stove drip pans in my apartment unit?Is it legal?

Question Details: I've been living in an apartment unit for almost 2 years now & I've requested several work orders in the past such as replacement of lights, shower fixtures, and even stove drip pans at no cost all. However, I was surprised last week when the management sent me a balance due notice letting me know that I owed them $12 for the pans. It's ridiculous because I worked as an apartment maintenance before & we replaced items such as stove drip pans free of charge to the renters. Please help me with this one. Thank you very much!
