Wrongful Deposit Deductions?

Posted by Richard Koneval on November 11, 1996 at 12:59:56:

My wife was renting an apartment before we were married. She just recently
recieved the letter back from the landlord with the deposit back. In the
letter it said what deductions were made for any damages. One was the garbage
disposal which cost $150.00 for a new one he said. He had stated that the
motor had burnt out. When she moved in, it did not work right and he knew it
did't work. Does he have the right to charge for this even though he has no
clue how old it is and that it did not work properly when she moved in? Another
charge was for a garage door which broken when they moved in and he knew it because
the people upstairs from her broke it the year before, and not to mention
that it fell on two people and luckily there were injuries. Does he have the
right to charge for the garage door since she was not the one to break it
in the first place and he never had it repaired in the first place?
