This bastard seems bound and determined to keep some of our security deposit. I just don’t fucking get it. We were good tenants- quiet, never had problems, paid the rent on time. He was a not so great landlord- kept “accidentally” taking our mail (The shithead even opened and read one of our bank statements- then commented on it :mad: ), he never fixed things, we had to supply our own smoke detectors because there weren’t any, and it took him a GODDAMN week to fix a sewer/drain that backed up into our living space and soaked into the carpeting!
We moved out at the end of last month, and we left the place cleaner than we found it. The apartment was spotless and I even cleaned all the carpeting. Well, the day after we moved out, he left me a voicemail saying we needed to repaint the walls The walls were the same color they were when we moved in, and we have pictures that prove it. I called back, and he wouldn’t answer the phone. We stopped by, and he was out in the driveway, so we talked. He basically said “Oh really? I must have forgotten, ha ha. I’m not trying to put one over on you. I’ll have my assistant send your deposit on Tuesday.”
Well, so far no deposit. Then, yesterday, we got a letter from the shitstain saying that he was keeping some of our deposit due to a “cat odor.” I called him again. He immediately told me he “wasn’t trying to put one over on me.” I asked him to describe the cat odor, and he couldn’t. I asked him where it was, and he couldn’t tell me. I asked if we could come over and verify this, and he said he’d already had the carpets professionally cleaned. I asked how much of our deposit he was taking and he said he didn’t know!
Now maybe I’m more suspicious than average, but why keep telling me you’re not “trying to put one over” on me if you’re not? Makes you sound like a used car salesman. :dubious:
Listen fucknugget- just give us our deposit back! You kept telling us how fucking rich you were, this can’t be that much money to you! :mad: <becomes too mad to keep typing>
- We’ve checked up on the law, and if he doesn’t do everything by the book or give back our whole deposit, we’re going to try to take him to mediation with us and the city.
