I recently moved out of my condo.
The place was "clean" according to the person I hired to clean it (usually trustworthy).
I notified the landlord 30 days prior to moving out, and I notified him that I had vacated the place the day I left (exactly 30 days after notification).
The landlord did not send me my deposit back.
According to my contract-lease document he had 30 days to notify me of any reason why he would not refund my deposit.
After several notifications and questions, and after 38 days he finally responded and sent pictures that showed what he called "damage."
After 45 days he sent me a demand letter saying he was keeping my deposit and is demanding an additional $950 to cover the "damages
According to my contract, he only had 30 days to respond.
He missed that deadline.
Now he is trying to scare me into paying more for trumped up "damages"
How do I get my money back from this dishonest person?
