So, we got a letter from the old landlord today.
Not only is he keeping the full security deposit, he also wants and additional $114
He is charging us for:
We owe that, no dispute - $171.55
Rent for 6 days - $92.
Only stayed there til the 4th, even prorated the water bill til the 4th.
5 blinds missing in the bedrooms and kitchen.
None of the rooms had blinds when we moved in. Or bedroom had 2 shades, they were still there when we moved out. He wants $25 for that.
Pulled 20 nails and plastic anchors and plastered and painted the bedroom. I did all of that before we moved out. He wants $50 for that.
Water damage in bathroom. He claims it is form the shower curtain not being closed all of the way, really it was from the toilet seal leaking.
He has a bill form a contractor for $186.39
Lastly, he charged $40 for removal of the dryer, 7 skids, and a battery from the basement.
The dryer was there when we moved in. We left the skids for the new tenants since the basements floods.
I did leave the battery, forgot about that.
BUT, the best part is the letter I wrote him with the address to contact at us (the law firm) I told him I wanted to be present when he did a walk through to assess the damage. He never contacted us.
I told my boss, he said "no problem, we'll sue him.
Personally, I want to
I drafted a letter to respond and had my boss sign it.
Probably end up in court.
