So at this point I'm pretty sure I'm not getting my last damage deposit back (with no explanation), and I have to decide how much effort it's worth to try and get blood from that particular stone
I mean at least having dealt with her for 6 years I already assumed the money was long since spent and she'd try to handwave away returning it, so I'm not relying on getting it but like
then I know she'll just try it on the next tenants too
@BeerFox Write a registered letter asking for a detailed explanation? Our last landlady had some fairly bogus (and a few legit) claims made, and I suspect they have to be forced to itemize the security deposit, but I dunno MA state law.
@Chiaroscuro They are, but that gets back to how much effort I want to put in. Knowing her, I'm pretty sure it'd go:
- I send request for official damages
- She responds claiming we're responsible for everything wrong in a 100+ year old house and so no deposit left
- I take her to small claims, win
- She has no liquid assets, so collecting becomes a nightmare
@BeerFox I guess on the upside, you're free from that crap forever now. Now *you* get to be the evil landlord. :3
