Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can.
Can you tell me what state this is in?
Did you actually pay a security deposit to the previous owner?
Do you have proof of doing so? (i.e. cancelled check, bank statement, written lease stating deposit, etc.)
Is your current written lease with the new owner or the old one?
