Can my landlord do that?
1 attorney answer
Technically your landlord is entitled to a full month's rent if you overstayed your lease by any portion of a month, however, the things you describe could also entitle you to several months rent as well. Unless the landlord sues you for this money, you can probably just ignore the request. If they sue you, bring all your claims as well, or be proactive and talk to an attorney about pressing your own claims first. Tenant claims often come with attorneys fees so many lawyers take these cases on contingency.
