Wanted to get everyone's opinion to see if I got shafted and should try to get my money back.
My situation we rented a townhome 2 years 10 months ago in Scripps Ranch. When we moved in the house was pretty dirty, we had spiders crawling everywhere, a layer of dust on the floor, a thick layer of dust on the fan, the garage was completely covered in dirt. I have noted all of these down and sent a copy to the landlord/rental agency. I should note that I didn't take any pictures when we moved in or out, my mistake.
When we moved out we called cleaners to clean the place and also had the carper shampooed. When I did a move out check with the rental agent she mentioned to me that there were a few stains on the refrigerator, a small stain on the dining room wall and discoloration on the railings. We moved out on the 8th of August and did this inspection on the 10th of August. (Nothing was provided in writing) I told her at that point that she must check with the move in list to asses the state of the house. I provided her with the receipts for the cleaning of the house and carpet.
This weekend after (Sept 7 2013) nearly 28 days later she tells us she has deducted around $450.00 from my security deposit. I haven't gotten any other communication from them. I have read online that she must provide me a written list of things to fix within 21 days. Also she needs to provide me with a itemized list of repairs and the cost of each of them.
