In May '97 I moved out my FL appartment to better opportunities in CO. The landlord inspected the appartment before I moved out, and said she would send the money within 2 weeks.
It's now much later. I never recieved anything, neither did I receive a claim for damage and/or cleaning. Everytime I call her she gives me another reason why she didn't pay me back :
- No lease signed ; she neglected to give me one, I only have the one of the broker.
- place was dirty, flees all over ; the garden was full of racoons and opossums, and she neglected to spray, ignoring my advice.
The main reason I think is that she believes I won't take the effort to sue her in the small courts. Believing that I won't be able to get refunded for travel expenses and/or lawyer costs.
My question : What can and should I do, what can I reclaim from costs I make (or should I plan my next holiday in FL). Can I demand punitive damages and lost interests ?
