I have recently consulted with an attorney regarding my case, and was advised that I still have a legal obligation to pay rent since I broke my lease. However, the landlord must use the security deposit first before he can require me to pay any rent. I have written the landlord a letter and sent it certified mail. In this letter, I advised him of my legal rights, and requested he use the security deposit as next month's rent. I have reason to believe however, that this security deposit was not secured properly in a seperate interest bearing account. I also have reason to believe that he will say that I have damaged the apartment and that repairs needed to be made with this deposit. I took as many pictures as I could of the apartment before I left
and had my friends witness that the apartment was in good condition. May I sue him if he refuses to give me full credit for my security deposit? Do I have a leg to stand on?
need help fast January 1st is around the corner!
