Hello: This isCustomer Welcome to JustAnswer! I am reviewing your post, and I will post my response very shortly. Thank you for your patience.
Yes. The garage is part of the apartment.
Thank you for the information.
Your follow-up questions:
Based on your response, I have been over paying for the last 5 years for the garage rental. It started at $50 per month for the first year. Went to $75 for two years, went to $100 for two years and now just got bumped to $211 per month. Am I entitled to the money I over-payed?
Response 1: Yes, you are.
If so, how do I get my money back? $30 of the $211 is a fee for the use of the laundry room. I have made every payment on time. I have copies of the original rental agreements plus the most recent rate hike.
Response 2: You can send a written request to the Landlord/property management for refund. Then, if your request is denied or ignored, you can file a Small Claim. If you cannot afford the Court fee, you can request for a fee waiver.
