: : Hi! I live in California and haven't been able to find an answer to my question on any of the websites I've visited, so I'm hoping someone in cyberspace can help me. :-) I've rented a condo for over 5 years and have always had a good landlord-tenant relationship. Up until I gave notice that I plan on moving, that is. Suddenly, my landlords are not returning my phone calls regarding setting up a time to go through the place after I clean it and to give them back their keys. I finally reached him and he is adamantly *refusing* to look at the place with me when I move. He said to mail him the keys and he'd look at it and then "get back to me." I have a $600 deposit that I am sure that this person intends on keeping. At this point, I feel like I'm being set up for a $600 fall. Can anyone help here?

: Have you paid your last months rent, yet? In a similar situation I
: stopped payment on my last rent check and told the landlord to keep
: the deposit as last month's rent. I also took photographs of the entire
: place before I moved out in case I have to prove there was no
: damage. My situation is not entirely resolved yet, so I don't know
: what legal repurcussions my actions will have, but I'm willing to fight it out.

Take photos, and conduct the walk-through anyway with a witness. Write
the landlord certified mail and tell him that a walk-through will occur
on date and time certain with or without him and give him the opportunity
to show up. Give him two alternative times as well that you will be there
(one day and one eve). Of course he's trying to set you up. Document
your offer.
