Owner wants to keep our deposit???
We have recently vacated a rental property and completed a final walkthrough with the property manager. We hired someone to clean the property beforehand and did two more checks afterwards to make sure everything was clean. During our final walkthrough, we were only asked to replace a few lightbulbs and otherwise were told that the property was in a perfect condition. Two weeks after our walk through, we get an email from the property manager stating that there is a damage inside the house: chipped front door, chipped floor board, mildew/mold inside a HE washer. The email states that our deposit will not be fully refunded due to these damages. What are our rights dear Popville?
