It is worth a try. No one can guarantee the outcome however. Sue in small claims court where no one can have an attorney. Send a written demand to the landlord for the amout of money you are looking for and send i by certified mail, return receipt requested so you have proof of receipt. Make sure you have proof, such as photos, recepts for the items you are seeking reimbursement for. Good luck.
