Landlord overcharging my security deposit

Postby Nudetypist » Mon Nov 13, 2017 5:41 pm

I moved out a few months ago and there was 1 minor issue pointed out by the building super. It was minor but the landlord decided to charge me for a complete replacement instead of repair. It did not need to be replaced but he just took the opportunity for a free upgrade using my security deposit.

I will be filing a complaint with the attorney general. Are there any other agencies I could contact? Small claims court will be a last resort.

Thank you.
