Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

If she is not fixing the problem and you paid the rent, it is not your fault that it was stolen from her possession AND you can sue her for breach of lease. So, your next option if she does not fix the rent issue would be to sue her for breach of lease and seek a court judgment against her for any money damages you have suffered as a result of her conduct.

how do i go about that because so far i did lost money claim forms 3 of them i have copys of the receipts of the money orders and had the company who does fraud sent me a copy of the money orders and who cashed them with the acount number trace number serial number and dates and amounts with who ever stole it writeing on the money orders so then filed police report and the cops have copys of all the info printed for them and now we have the report case number ***** now still geting a demand for payment from landlord today this has been going on since feb 26,2018

Thank you for your reply.

You go to the local court clerk's office and you ask for the small claims court complaint form and fill it out with the information and the amount of money lost and then you file it and they will serve the apartment manager to come to court and you will present your proof to the judge.

this is a brand new landlord had about 3 now in last year in a half and no one lets anyone know they are new landlords

Thank you for your reply.

You need to go to court to sue for breach of contract, since you paid and they have been negligent in dealing with your rent.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
