Customer Question

I turned over my keys to the owner while I was cleaning the otwnhouse. Meeting had my contact information in the envelope. He told me to stop what I was doing as he had hired a cleaning service and carpet cleaners. The day after I left her started renovations and installed new appliances. He released the rental company and took the security deposit in full. He is now trying to charge me $1000+ for unpacked nail holes and touch upper paint. The tenant prior to me was evicted and there was unresolved damage to the property.

Do you have any pictures of evidence or prior damage before you moved in? Was there a walk through done before you moved in?
