Hello. Let me see if I can assist. The landlord wants $600 for the 14 days you were renting in February, even though he said you would not owe anything, correct? did you have a security deposit posted with the landlord?
I would not pay him. I would make demand for return of your security deposit. It is very unlikely that he will try to sue you for the $600.
What is his legal basis for $4000? Sounds like he is bluffing and just trying to threaten you to get $600.
If he did not give proper notice to vacate or pay - he failed to properly comply with the eviction statutes. Therefore, the landlord will have a hard time recovering his alleged $4000. I would not pay. Force him to file suit - which he likely will not.
Improper notice. Ignore his demands.
