I moved out of my apartment and I expected to receive a portion of my $450 deposit in the mail. However, I received a notice stating that i OWED $70! This is because:
1. Prorated rent for 1 week of $210
2. Painting service of $170
3. Cleaning service of $140
I understand the prorated rent. But how can painting and cleaning services total $310? Although this is subjective, I left the place in great condition. No holes, no stains, nothing. I find it hard that a cleaning service would cost $140 considering most maids earn no more than $8/hr.
Do I have any grounds for dispute? Or am I just screwed?
any insight is greatly appreciated.
