  • There was an electrical fire in my apartment. I had to move out for a week. What expenses does the landlord owe me?

    I spent extra gas and I had to buy 2 coolers to save my food. They only offered $60 dollars a day for 6 days. The electricity was out for a week.

    all this is goverened by the contract. We have to review your contract to see the language with regards to this type of damage. Also we should check why the power outage occured.

    Isaac’s Answer

    You have to see the lease.
    Under regular circumstances the purpose of the security deposit is to guarantee that the tenant will return your apartment in working order. Should they not, you have to make a claim on the deposit. Time is of the essence though, as by statute you have a limited amount of time to file the claim.
