Hi, the manager of my previous Apt. Complex here in Austin, TX, has given several Notices of Non Renewal to residents who have been living there for many years, with no reasonable justifications (empty verbal excuses, not based on real facts or issues). I was one of them. After 7 years living there, I received a notice and had to move out. That created a tension between me, tha manager, and th landlord comany. After having some free tenant counseling in Austin, they tols me I "didnt have a case" to fight their decision. Now, that I am totally moved out, I received a note saying I have a move out balance and my security deposit
was not enough. Notice this was an apartment
occupied for 7 years, with normal wear and tear, and a reason for tension with the same manager, that didn't want to change it. I don;t think it is fair or legal for them to change this balance of $320 for Ozone treatment and 'painting of walls', that needed top be painted anyway to host the new resident. What do you suggest me to do?
JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?
Customer: Austin, TX
JA: Has any paperwork been filed?
Customer: No, I explained everything above...
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: no, thanks
