LL did not inform attorney of my vacate 10/2; verbal received by RM to use deposit for Nov's final pmt . landlord rejects verbal stating RM does not have authority..11/1/14: Received 3 day to quit or pay rent. Note: LL currently violating countless RSO ordinances and civil requirements i.e., interest on deposits, late charge notices, false 3 days notices ,etc. Thanks!!
all I can tell you is that a LL does not have to credit the deposit towards last months rent.
nothing in the answer above constitutes legal advice. nothing in the answer above creates an attorney-client relationship between myself or my firm and any persons on AVVO.
You post a lot of facts but not in any clear manner. A landlord can apply a deposit to unpaid rent. But I am not sure that is what you are asking. See the link below for the answers to your issues, or go see a local landlord tenant attorney.
