Landlord bill his time in Georgia

A friend and I rent a townhouse from a chap in Alpharetta, GA.  When I moved in the landlord gave me a key to the mailbox but when I went to get my mail, the box would open to get my mail but I had to shake it to get the key out.  Two days later I tried again and the key broke off.  Since I did not report it the first time, the landlord is billing me for the USPS charge to replace the lock ($23).  He is also charging me $15 for his time to go to the Post Office to order the lock change.    Is it legal for him to bill me for his time like this??  Thanks....Richard

First of allyou should of told him as soon as it happend, I would think it is your fault, but It seems you have a real tight landlord. . he should bend some seeing it wasn;t done on purpose.
