Once you move out of an apartment or rental property most states in the U.S. state that you have to return a deposit or a list of charges deducted from the deposit within 30 days of the property being vacated. What can a person do if they do not return the deposit or a notification of charges deducted? How can you fight something that is placed on your creditMoney loaned or the ability of an individual or company to borrow money. report if you have proof with pictures that the property had been cleaned and had no damages?

Do you think posting the information all over the net is enough. What do you do if they see the information and try to sue you over that as stating that it is slander or liable in this case.

Check with local and state laws to see what the requirement is. check the lease to ensure that you did not agree to a non-refundable deposit. Then take proper action against the landlord.

I would go directly to a court of law on this subject and file a small claims against the landlord. There are time frames that they have to follow and if they are not following them then they need to be taught a lesson. You can ask for the filing fee in the case as well and you will most likely win but brings your evidence with you.

One of the advantages of today is that you can paste your bad experience around the internet if you don't find justice moving fast enough.

If I were you, I would go to your local housing authority, and file a complaint with them against the landlord/leasing agency that is holding your security deposit. Be prepared to show them those pictures though, and don't expect miracles overnight. The wheels of justice move slowly.
