: I just got my security deposit back, with a $50 deduction for window washing. This is clearly a lie, since none of the windows were ever washed for new tenants or myself. Do I have a case against my LL? Since the lease wasn't signed and delivered to all parties, am I still responsible for meeting the conditions of the lease?

The landlord isn't supposed to deduct for anything considered normal wear/tear, and that would seemingly include dirty windows. Otherwise, he could also charge you for a floor refinishing and a fresh paint job. It's fifty buck though and probably not worth your time to fight.
