I have a rental...

I have a rental property in Tarrant County that the tenants essentially ruined. It turns out that my property management company had not been doing inspections and because of that, I am dealing with over $16,000 in rehab bills. I am trying to explore my options.

Lawyer's Assistant: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Texas, Tarrant County, Arlington

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

I reported it to the property manager and even tried to file a vandalism claim with my insurance carrier. The claim was denied due to the damage being caused by a tenant.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I think that should suffice for now

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.
