I've lived in a two family, owner-occupied home for several years ago. We never had notice of the location of our security, nor have we received yearly interest statements or payments. We gave landlord written notice under the Rent Security Deposit Act that we were using our security and permitted interest to our rent. He says he looked into it and we're not entitled to apply the interest because it's owner-occupied. He's refusing to accept the security deposit as rent and has now given us a notice to quit for failure to pay rent. Please clarify. We have been paying cash but haven't received a receipt in over a year. He wants late fees for last year. First year was a lease; month to month since then. Is landlord entitled to late fees if demand is not in writing? Are they statutory?
