I manage under 5 properties.
Does the law require I email or certified a letter to inform them of why I don''t owe them any amount from the security, that they actually owe me, but I will just call that a wash? They are aware of what, where, when and why via multiple past emails between my tenants and myself.
Currently, they are insisting that I need to send them a certified letter, from a technical standpoint attempting to outwit what is the right thing to do-rent a house, pay the rent. Tear off an attached shelf off the walls and place stickers all over the kids bedroom, pay to repaint. I don't owe them one penny as far as I'm concern.
They are attempting to take advantage of the technicalities, to outwit, to avoid paying the back rent owed, and are demanding their deposit back or else! Trouble makers and attempting to divert the truth-they owe me. Never have any of past past tenants attempted to outfox the reality except this person so I'm curious to the proper procedure.
Can anyone answer this question-Does the law say I owe them a certified letter to explain what was already explained in multiple emails?
Thank you in advance.
I suggest that you review your lease agreement to see what it says about the security deposit if you are evicted. Often times, it is not refunded if you are evicted and owe the landlord money.
