Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
Where are they getting the $12,000 amount from?
Thank you. In a situation like this, if it is with collections, you can try and settle with them, if you want. Often times, the collection agency will take less then what is owed, since they get a percentage of whatever they are able to recover. Now, if you do not have money to pay and try and settle or you do not care to, then eventually they will sue and get a judgment against you. They will then try and go after you to satisfy the judgment. If they had 3 months of security deposits, those should have been applied to what is owed and they should only be going after you for the balance, so you can dispute this and ask for an accounting
