I recently moved out of an apartment complex that is run by a big management company. I left the apartment spotless and in as good shape as when I had moved in one year prior.
I have now received notice that they are not only keeping my security deposit to pay for cleaning (which is unwarranted, as I had it cleaned prior to moving, which I had informed them of), but they are charging me extra for replacing the carpet and paint. This seems not only excessive, but borderline illegal. Is this legal and who can I turn to for help?
