Wallpaper repair in a corner of the room

Hello everyone,
I am a college student and I am renting an apartment. Soon I will be moving out and I would like to get my deposit back from the landlord. The issue I have is that in one of the rooms the wallpaper in the corner has become soft due to moisture and by pushing back my closet after cleaning under it I ruptured the wallpaper. I hope the pictures can describe the situation. I was wondering if it is repairable in any way or I will have to remove it completely and place a new sheet of wallpaper.
Thanks in advance.
Alex

Welcome to the forums Alex!
Your pic link doesn't work try this - https://www.doityourself.com/forum/e...-pictures.html

Unless the wallpaper is fairly recent it's doubtful you'll find a match. Was the water from you cleaning?

Unless you were responsible for the water issue it would be a maintenance problem that you had no control over thus nothing that would prevent you from getting deposit back!

Thanks for the very fast replys. The water is a condensation probably because it's an outside facing wall or maybe after raining it drips from somewhere.

That sounds like a landlord issue, how long ago did you notice it?

Tell the landlord, if it's a condensation issue that's something he'd want to look into.
