Me and my daughter moved out of our apartment in Woodland Hills. The landlord took us to court and agreed to let us out of our lease and for us to owe only like $3,000 after our $500 deposit. However, after me and my daughter moved out with literally no where to go for me, I have since been getting these harassing phone calls for a $4,500 amount that I did not agree to in order to move out. They did not take care of repairs when we were in the apartment, and we told them that were unemployed, and me and my daughter have been making the $200 a month payment that we agreed to for the $3000 amount, but I am trying tofigure out what is my recourse.
A rental agreement is a contract outlining terms of tenancy for a certain period of time. Short-term rental agreements may renew automatically until cancelled.
Landlord-tenant law is governed mostly by state laws, and covers issues like security deposit limits and deadlines, evictions, and the right to withhold rent.
