My husband and I recently moved out of a house we rented here in Iowa (June 2000).We had a written lease. After 2 and a half months we finally got a notice saying that we would not get any of the deposit ($600) back due to damages and cleaning that had to be done when she sold the house. When I confonted her about the known damages done she said that although she didn't have them repaired she was obligated to the costs. She also said that she had to spend about $50 for cleaning, when we left the house the way we found it. She also charged for a missing shower curtain and 2 late payments when we know we paid on time and the shower curtain had been thrown away because it was dirty.
Should we get our deposit back in full or does she have a right to all of it?
