:Take the LL to Small Claim Court, with any relevant documents.

I had posted earlier this week..we found out 2/24 that the apt we were in was illegal (2 families in one house). We found and
: moved into a new apt by 3/14. LL says we are not entitled to the sec dep back bec we didn't give her notice. (I thought
: that these were extenuating circumstances-- she had wanted us to lie to the town...remove our kitchen area appliances and
: put our bedroom set into a backyard shed)>

: Last night, the LL said she would give us the sec dep back....only to be offered one week's rent back because of a list
: of false allegations.

: Besides the AG's office, is there any action I can take? I am already trying to contact the town investigator who visited the apt.

: Thanks
: Emily
