Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
Hello. I am going to be assisting you with your question today.
Please note: This is general information and is not legal advice. No specific course of action is proposed herein, and no attorney-client relationship or privilege is formed by speaking to an expert on this site. By continuing, you confirm that you understand and agree to these terms.
Did you ever sign a lease for the apartment? Do you have a copy of the lease, if you did? What does it say about the late/cancellation fees?
You already went to mediation? What was the outcome? Was it an impasse?
