I just moved September 30. My rent was $750 a month and I gave a $750 deposit when I moved in. My landlord let me pay $400 for the last months rent. He gave me a reduction of $350 and took it off of my security deposit. He said when I move out he'd give me the remaining $400 of the security deposit. This was a verbal agreement and not written. The day I moved out he didn't have the $400. He said I would get the check in th mail in 2 weeks. It has almost been a month. I told him if I don't recieve the $400 within 30 days I am filing in court to get it back. I am filing in court on November 1st if I don't recieve the check in the mail. Will I have trouble getting the $400 back in court since it was a verbal agreement? I have a copy of the money order for last months' rent of $400.
