In Reply to: I LIVE UPSTAIRS FROM "SATAN" AND NEED HELP BADLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! posted by Al Gonzalez on January 29, 1998 at 00:34:42:

She must keep your security deposit in a seperate interest-earning account and
she must furnish you proof of this or she is in serious violation as a
landlord and she can be reported (tell her you need the bank's statement
of interest on this account to report on your taxes since the interest
is your earned income). I am not a lawyer..I just know this fact.
Best wishes to you and your family.

: I live in Westchester Co. above my landlady in a 2 family home.
: Last yr. she charged me 1.5 months security (is the legal limit 1 mos?-plus did
: they have to tell us where is was deposited???)

: At 7:30pm on December 31 she tells me & my 6 mos. pregnant wife that she will
: not renew the lease by falsely accusing my wife of smoking (which would violate
: the "There is no smoking on premises" clause on the lease). Stated she smelled smoke
: in our bathroom 6 weeks earlier, when she came upstairs w/a plumber (at my request)
: to fix the heat. Also claimed she missed 4 days from new job due to smoke drifting
: downward (through ceramic floors and ceiling!!!!). My wife stopped smoking
: last year, never smoked in the apartment. Always paid our rent on time, and we are
: quiet as mice. Although I am having a walk-thru with pictures, I am afraid
: this isn't enough.
: walk-through done, what else can I do to prevent this maniac from keeping
: my money?
