Best part... If this guy tries making up some crap or whatever, ultimately not give me my $747.50 with in 30 days... I will successfully sue him for $6,727.50, less $1495 for May.
I DARE him to stiff me. He wont know what hit him! I'm not in the habit of leaving things to chance.
If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.
He kept saying, "you're not listening to me" and "I'm not a lawyer..." then proceed to provide the worst, incorrect, legal advise ever. 😂 What an ass hole. I just said Id think about it to get away from the guy. I called my lawyer in the morning to firm up I was right and form a plan. Was a great call. Best call I made in years! I mean that.
I was very clear to the new manager, I will not lose my deposit. Period. I was a bit shocked when he asked where May's rent was. In escrow, I telegraphed that to you weeks ago.
He flips out. He thinks I'm a dumb ass or he's a dumb ass. I think it's 1:1 myself. Insisting my lease was with the last management company and I needed to get with them.
No, your client, the owner is responsible and I'm not sending the rent.
That said, the current owner thats putting me out has a bit of a problem. The orginal agent he contracted to manage the property, sole 6 months rent and the security deposit. Rather unfortunate. The new manager adimted to my wife the owner doesn't have the funds to cover my deposit. Suggesting I go after the management company. 😒 I had a better idea. Withhold last months rent (may) and I'm 66% there, just $747.50 left due. A more manageable figure.
In the house here, the jack and Jill satin finish ($120 a pop) mirrors with cabinets and matching satin finish faucets ($40 each) it was these nasty cheap faucets with a giant mirror, no cabinet. And I panted over all the BABY BLUE all over the house. Cost me $1800. Now that was 9 years ago, the white especially needs a fresh coat. Thats not my problem. The haven't painted in a decade. They're lucky!
Having been a land lord, and I'm picky, like nice things and am willing to pay a few bucks. I HATE yellow gold finish! Yuk. Satin, stainless, silver all work just fine. This means I have to swap all my door hardware and light fixtures throughout. As I've already done. Plus a couple new LED lights 👍 I can make due. I am rather upset TBH, I am atteched to this house... Seeing it empty is very unsettling. Been here 9 years. 😔
Yeah, that's not gonna work on several levels, for about $200 the whole counter top will be replaced. I will get a stainless sink for free from a salvage buddy, about $50 in odds and presto, a kitchen I can live with for a year or 2. (be in postion to buy around then)
All I ask is my security deposit in full. I leave places in BETTER condition.
