Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
small claims court is set up for these very cases. You do not need a lawyer. Simply file a complaint with the clerk of the court and the case will be scheduled. Its very simple. Burden of proof will be on landlord to show basis for such charges, and court should grant you the money back and may award additional damages.
