in order to avoid a civil suit, our landlord offered to not collect rent for February and march and asked that we put april and may in an escrow account. if we find a new place before may 31st, they will give us back whatever portion of may's rent that applies to time we didn't live here. however, they have two months of our security that no one mentioned. If they keep our two months security and we pay april and may, then we really aren't getting a deal. Can I ask what they intend to do with our security? do they have any right to keep it? thanksI just received their settlement. their intent is to keep the two months security and the rent for april and may, which means we aren't getting a deal at all. we didn't pay February and march because we were constructively evicted when the sewer main for the building backed up into our unit and they didn't do anything to fix the damage or clean the mess. I am so disappointed.
