    security deposit

    My previous landlord is trying to keep my security deposit as well as make me pay the rent for the month of february. They have already received the portion of the rent paid by the state (HUD). I was never told that HUD had paid their portion for February. I was told I had until February 5th to vacate. Due to medical problems, we were unable to turn in the keys until February 12th. I called on February 16th to ask about my security deposit and she demanded payment for the remainder of February. That money is very important to me and I need to know what I can do about this. During the 1 1/2 years I lived there, I lost close to $450 in groceries due to a faulty refrigerator, dealt with a rotten floor in the bathroom, with a 4-year-old, for almost a year, and only 1 eye on the stove top worked consistently. I complained of all of these problems multiple times and have witnesses.

    Your best option I think would be to file a claim in small claims court.
