I moved out of the condo a month ago. The security deposit

Customer Question

I moved out of the condo a month ago. The security deposit was 5000$ and the landlord stated that the deposit interest rate is 0.25% (I thought it was 1.5%). The landlord never made an appointment with me to do the walk-thru when I moved out. And now he sent me an expense invoice (proposal) of 5036$. So I owe him $36. I lived in the condo for just over a year and he is claiming that he needs the floors refinished which costs $3000. I think the expenses are very unreasonable and unheard of. what can I do about this?
