Question: We have been renting a condo for 5.5 years and now are moving out. We have heard that no one gets their deposits back. Our biggest concern is the carpet, since it's degraded since we've been here. Is "normal wear and tear" at all a consideration? Is there an algorithm or guide on what they should do. We have an $1100 deposit and can't afford to lose it.

Our rental property will only put down traps and do not make any major effort to eradicate the problem with mice. How can we get them to move forward in paying for extermination and an expert to identify where the mice are coming in?

Question: C Our neighbor upstairs has caused us problems about the parking and has threatened my 70 yr old husband and myself. Last Friday his gun "went off " into the floor of our bedroom, where my granddaughter and I were. He went to jail. No one was hurt. But I do not feel safe with all that and then yesterday a person was arrested in front of our apt with a large amt of money and drugs. He went to jail also. Our lease is up but we had intended to renew. Now I'm afraid to live here. We were supposed to give a 2 months notice if we moved out. Do we still have to give that much notice?
