Hi there. I am looking for advise on how to handle the absurd letter my former landlords sent me with my drastically reduced deposit refund.
When I moved into the house in June 2012, I was charged first, last, and deposit. The house is located in San Diego. My final deposit letter arrived 33 days after my lease expiration
and it states the following:
Last month's rent ($1625) + security deposit
$3125.00 = March Rent ($1925x21/31 - 2016)
Late charges: March 2012 - Rcvd 6th ($70) + January 2012 - Rcvd 4th ($50) + October 2011 - Rcvd 4th ($50) + December 2011 - Rcvd 6th ($70) = $240.00
-Please notice that I didn't even live in their house until June 2012.-
Lawn - $150
Front Stairs & Sidewalks - $25
Floors & Ceiling Fans - $150
Windows & Screens - $150
Bathroom - $75
Refrigerator, Oven, and Kitchen - $100 of $175
As you can see, there in no details or receipts explaining the charges and the dates are above are before I even lived there. Please advise me on the best way to handle these people in the most timely manner.
