Our tenants requested a pre-move-out inspection on their 30 days notice for July. They asked for a specific date. We agreed. They canceled that and switched to another date. In fact they did this a total of 3 times before scheduling it for the last day of their tenancy on the 30th. When we arrived on 30th they told us they were not able to do it, they were busy cleaning and fixing things. We have that in writing email as well.
We intended on doing a walk through inspection and worked with them on when to do it. But they just kept canceling.
We are now being sued for Bad Faith for $2K + $4K. They had a security deposit of $2K and we listed damages of around $3.5K. We sent this itemized list within 21 days and followup receipts shortly after that.
Would a judge see this at bad faith?
