I paid my rent for my final month of my lease online. Then my landlord automatically withdrew rent from my bank account, which is what they always do. Now I have paid double the rent. Are they allowed to keep both payments or are they required to refund my money?
The landlord can’t keep it. Make a written request for a refund of the overpayment, and if the landlord doesn’t refund the money, you can sue in small claims court.
