I recently moved from my apartment in San Jose, CA. I was there for about 1 year. My landlord sent me an itemized list of repairs along with a notice to pay about $80, stating that my deposit of $500 dollars was not sufficient to cover the cost of repairs. The letter said if I did not pay, they would report me to the Credit Reporting Agencies and give me bad credit. Is this legal? I was unable to find any information about Landlord's rights to request more money from tenants than the Security Deposit.
