Is my lease legally binding?

Posted by Zoe on September 14, 2000 at 20:11:04:

I recently moved out of a townhouse privately owned in Western NY. I had a written lease which specifically stated that my security deposit would be returned to me with an itemized list of damages (if any) within 7 days of vacating the premises. After 14 days, I had not received a response. I contacted the Landlord, who now states that he is holding the security pending possible replacement of the carpets due to pet odor.

My question is:

Can I sue the Landlord for my security deposit since he broke the written terms of the lease?
