My lease was expiring, i needed to stay at that apartment for a little longer, so i asked to stay on a month to month basis. they agreed, however they gave me the lease extension to sign instead. after a few month i decided to leave, so i told a lady in the office 30 days before that i will be leaving, after i left they did not return my security deposit, and placed the collection on my credit for the "remaining" balance minus the security deposit.
This record prevents me from getting a mortgage, and from moving on with my life. I just recently was denied a personal credit for 30k to start a business.
Can i sue them for what they have cost me, and for the security deposit?
