From what I glean from your question if it's your property you shouldn't need a business license to rent it. It would be like renting a room or a granny flat I would think. Now if you're going o rent it to someone who want to run a business out of it that's another story.

k They would then need a license. Or if you're planning to run a business from the studio technically you'd need one as well. But you really should consult with the city and find out what their requirements are.

Did they give you an accounting of your deposit? By law, they have to do that and they have 11 days to do it. So, all you have to do is take them to small claims can go online and file against them. Make sure you have your cancelled check, rental agreement etc. Once they are served, they will cough up the deposit.....unless there are other circumstances like cleaning, damages etc. They will not want to go to court since the courts usually take the side of the tenant... You cannot use the roaches or poor maintenance as leverage.....
