I did not cash the check yet, just wondering if I can. Landlord returned a fraction of the security deposit and is making statements in her outline that are false for withholding. I can prove each one but the money that was returned, can I still cash although it says full payment? I already opened the case, but it was opened after the check was sent and therefore has a earlier date. A letter was sent a letter asking if I can please cash the check. I see this as a red flag.
