I tried to renew my lease back in October 2015 2016 - July

I tried to renew my lease back in October 2015 for July 2016 - July 2017. I received an email a couple days later stating they forgot to have me reapply to my apartment complex before signing my lease and that I still needed to do that. I never reapplied. I received another email on November 2, 2015 stating "2016-2017 housing agreement has been voided." This came from the general manager at my apartment complex. Am I still obligated to pay the 2016-2017 lease if it has been voided?

I need to terminate my lease early. I understand that it is not a justified reason.I put the landlord on notice March 18th and told them that we would do everything possible to help them find a new tenant. She placed an ad in craigslist so I assumed she was ok with it. She sent me an email that she is going on vacation for two months and she will not be able to do anything about it until she returns. I entered the lease with her and her son. he is here and more that capable of handling. She informed me that she would allow me to break the lease on July 31st and she would keep my 3300 deposit as a penalty. We have a new place that we are moving to May 1st.

I have a question on CA Security deposit refund law as reference

I have a question on CA Security deposit refund law as reference here.http://www.dca.ca.gov/publications/landlordbook/sec-deposit.shtmlToday, is the 22nd day since move-out and I received a check for 8301 of my 15,000 deposit. They went crazy and charged me for everything, well over market value after thanking me for taking such great car of their home. I have received an itemized list of deductions, but no receipts. It's my belief they are either pocketing the money, or rolling it into improvements - ie. charging me for scratches on wood flooring that was already significantly sun damaged etc. Charged me for mechanical items that stopped working, holes that I never did etc.Question - do I have any broad recourse because they did not provide receipts ? If not, what is my best path ?

Beazer homes purchase our house through foreclosure, but before

Beazer homes purchase our house through foreclosure, but before they were able to complete their doccuments of owership like recording of deed of trust at the county recorder, they got us into illegal evection by presenting to the court that we are tenants not paying rent. All of these things happen when we are still the only recorded owner of our house at the nevada county recorder. This evection is already set aside by the Judge. I beleive that this case doesn't fall into tenant and landlord dispute since at the time of our evection, they are not yet our landlord nor they are yet the owner of our house. What kind of lawsuit can we go against them?

I lived in a rent stabilized apt on Long Island, NY and moved

I lived in a rent stabilized apt on Long Island, NY and moved out a few years ago, however my roommate stayed in the apt for the last few years. My roommate was not on the lease. I was on the lease by myself. However, when the landlord found out that I was no longer living there he began eviction procedures and now my old roommate is out of the apt. However, the landlord is also attempting to sue me for the rent difference between the stabilized rent and what they call the legal market value, cause they are saying that my roommate was not entitled to the stabilized rent they were paying for the last few years. Is that legal? If so, how many years is the landlord allowed to go back and sue me for?
