My prior property manager is attempting to retain security deposit for resodding a yard that was in poor condition when I moved in. Is that possible?

Eric Estate answered:
Where can I get information about good cause eviction rights for tenants that live in Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) apartments?
I'd contact a good Real Estate Attorney. Realtors are forbidden to give legal advice, so you probably won't get a lot of answers on this forum. Let me know if you need a referral.
