I and my family rented a single family house in Union, NJ.

Customer Question

I and my family rented a single family house in Union, NJ. Lived there for almost 9 years. Paid rent in time nothing due. Vacated in March 2016. During these years never got painted, old appliances got damaged never replaced. Now when vacated the landlord has put all claim on us. The landlord remodeled the whole kitchen and put all the expenses on us. Last month rent was adjusted from our 1&1/2 month deposit. The 1/2 month deposit is still with the landlord. We have received a notice from the court. Kindly advise. Thank you and kind regards

Good afternoon. I am Loren, a licensed attorney and I look forward to assisting you.

What is the landlord claiming? What notice did you get from the court?

Did the landlord ever send a written itemization of the security deposit?
