so I got my deposit back from my apartment today. 19 days later. 268.00 of 750.00... WTF?!!!! they repainted for 200 and cleaned for 100. funny because the place was in MOVE IN CONDITION (ask JBolty) and was actually as clean or cleaner than when I moved in. I lived there 1 yr. I'm pissed. So I call and complain and asked why the hell are you charging me 500 dollars in fee's? I hung ONE mirror up and the walls were clean. Carpet? Well, I understand the enviro/legal reason to have to do that and they charged like 75.00 for that. 200 to paint? REALLY? 100 to clean? Clean WHAT?!!!! I had a number of valid points to make and they are "investigating" but that just means that I need to go to the store to buy some KY otherwise it's just gonna hurt me more... SOOOOOO Xmas is gonna be lean for those receiving from me..

Pretty good start!

On another note: Moose needs a chair like that!

I would say that the back section of the bend is to back, just a little bit.

Probably about right since Taylor mentioned stretching it.

The only chance you had of getting back most of your deposit was to document with before and after photos and walk-through with a sign-off of condition with the agent for the property with that duration of residence.

If you trust them to do the right thing instead of putting them in the position where they have to, it won't happen most of the time.

Had you managed to be there for 2 years, things are different but 1 year puts you at a singular disadvantage. There are some very good tenant landlord tutorials and copies of the law online that define the relationship in which you as a tenant clearly have the advantage. It may not hurt to study up some if that money is important.

The best thing that could have happened is for them to wait 21 days to return your money at which point they would have had to forfeit the whole thing back to you or face much higher penalties for not doing so.

If you're gonna stretch it, the double bend at the top of the flare in the front will not look as good as it could.

When I moved in and did the walk through I had the lady document everything I saw wrong and there were a number of things... My mistake is that I didn't get a copy. I'd never been screwed over by an apt management like that before so I was nieve there. Only leg I have to stand on is that they didn't do a final walk through. I requested it, but they said the person was out and they would do it after the wknd... They never did. I called the manager's manager and she wasn't to happy that they didnt do a walk through and said she'd get back to me.. They took afterward pics and I CANT WAIT to see what they induced to create work. They also had the wrong deposit amount on their end. they shorted me 50 so I'll get that back.. Stuff like this makes you borderline paranoid of transactions..
The money loss doesnt put me in dire straights but it's more the principle and even if I was a millionaire, 500 bucks is 500 bucks. If it were debatable I'd understand but take it from me, I left that place MINT

What Blaine said... Read up on California civil code 1950.5. It's amazing how people's persona changes when mention of certified letters and small claims court comes up. Fyi I've been in your situation once or twice
