Hello,Thank you for the information, however, in order to assist you I need a bit more information. First, I need to know what State you rented the property in. Then I need to know what the landlord says the deduction was for. Are you saying that the landlord is deducting money for what they say is missing property? How long after you moved did you receive the itemized statement and partial payment?
