I moved from the rented residence on May 4, 2013 and turned over keys to my landlords representative after a move out inspection was done. The landlord has not returned my security deposit or send me a letter stating why. She lives in California and I live in Georgia. My local court says I must sue her in the state of her residency regardless of where the property is located. Is this true? Does this mean I must travel to California at my own expense?I have not sent a demand letter because at the end of my lease, the landlord became very nasty and it was difficult for us to communicate. There was only minor damage to the property, a small ding in the wall that happened as we were moving out. How will she be served?
