Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will try to help you. Please remember I just report or interpret the law, so the outcome may not be what you hoped for.
Have you informed the attorney who sent you the bill that you do not owe anything? Have you checked with the credit reporting agencies to see if they received a mistaken report from the landlord?
You should send a dispute letter to the attorney disputing the bill. You should also indicate that if they persist or file a false report with a credit reporting agency you will file suit under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
If I have answered all your questions, please highly rate my answer as that is how I receive credit. If you have more questions, please let me know. If the answer was especially helpful you can provide a bonus.
