Is there evidence to support the charges/claims which they are making?

hello
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
I have the list of original charges and it didnt have my pet deposit on it. It makes the difference of wether or not i owe them or they owe me
Estate Lawyer: LegalKnowledge, Attorney replied 2 months ago

They can only charge you for what is legally owed and which you are responsible for. If they performed an inspection and presented you with the final bill and you signed off and paid it, it could remain. If they looked after and found this prior to sending you the final bill, they could charge it.

i have not signed off on anything.
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
but they signed it saying it was how much i owed. and told me they were just being "nice" and that they are charging me for the full amount if im going to press for a pet deposit return.
Estate Lawyer: LegalKnowledge, Attorney replied 2 months ago

If nothing was final and they are still inspecting, they could submit and charge you for a final bill

Will the words be "Final Bill" on the top of it and are they required to show me this before its sent to collections?
Estate Lawyer: LegalKnowledge, Attorney replied 2 months ago

Yes, they would need to send a final bill to you and ask for it to be paid. They can not just send something to collections which they have yet to present.

You can retain a civil litigation attorney if this cannot be settled or resolved and need to defend a lawsuit or sue them.
