Have Real Estate Law Questions? Ask a Real Estate Lawyer.
I am Loren, a licensed attorney for over 30 yrs. Thank you for your patience as I review the question. I will post my response shortly.
Have you notified the landlord in writing of the specific items you are disputing?
Thank you for the additional information.
Your first step is to give written notice that you are disputing the charge.
Give them ten days to return the amount you believe you are due.
If they do not respond appropriately then your recourse is to sue in small claims court. Small claims court is designed to be a "user friendly", simplified process, so that you can present a claim without an attorney. Also, it moves much more quickly than regular court. You can get the necessary forms to start from the clerk of the court.
Did you have further questions? I am happy to continue if you do.
Otherwise, have I answered your question?
If you have no further questions please remember to rate my service so that I am credited by JA for answering your question and also so that I may close the question.
There is no additional charge to you for a 5 star rating of my service.
