Questions

Question: I gave my 30 day notice on April 1st stating that I would not be renewing my lease at the end of May. I also informed the office that I'm moving out on May 8th but I'm paying rent for the whole month of May. I requested a move out inspection Friday May 8th after I take all my belongings out. I was told by the Secretary that the manager does move out inspections when he feels like it. I am unable to return for a move out inspection because I am starting a job in another town. My question is from what date do I begin counting the 14 days for my security deposit to be returned?

Question: We did not find any results for 'I gave my landlord 2 months rent in advance. A few weeks later he told me i owed the electric bill so he took my money and put it on that. I specifically told him it was for two months rent. Plus i just found out he was double charging me on the electric every month. Now he is saying i owe him rent for this month, i dont feel i should have to pay it, i gave him 1800$ FOR RENT. Hes threatening to take me to court, can he evict me for this?'

Question: We signed a year lease, Feb.2015. There was a note on our door, may 4th,2015 saying we haven't signed yet. We called the Apt. Mngr. and he looked it up on the computer and saw that we did sign a lease but the year was wrong on the lease. Instead of 2015-16 it said 2014-15 but it has our signatures and the right date of signing 2-28-15. Nobody caught that when we signed in Feb.He said to come in and resign.When we went yesterday to resign he said the rent also increased even though we were quoted the price in the lease in Feb. This seems unfair and wrong/illegal?Help appreciated.Thanks, Tom
