To Whom it May Concern, I am ending a month-to-month lease

To Whom it May Concern,I am ending a month-to-month lease relationship with my landlord (who is the homeowner of a row home in Philadelphia). When giving notice this month via email, he responded affirming that I will no longer be on the lease (other tenant will remain on the lease individually), but he added that there were $1500 worth of trash fines that are still in his name at the property. I have some documented fines that I believe were already paid for and others that were given last summer to us that were before our time. I have no idea why trash "fees/fines" would be at $1500 and why I did not know/realize that the fines totaled this. Any advice on how to proceed would be helpful.
