    If you broke it, or it was broken while you were a tenant, you are responsible for repairing it.

    Think about a rental car.

    If the windshield gets broken while you're renting the car, you're responsible for repairing it.

    Doesn't matter how it was broken, or who did it, you're on the hook.

    Same situation in your apartment.

    That's why it is recommended to carry renter's insurance.

    The terms of your lease or rental agreement should have clues as to who should fix it
