Turning In The Keys

I turned in my keys to the old house

This is who I
thought I turned them in to...

When in reality, last night I realized

I turned them into this

I hired "MerryMaids" to clean the house after we moved out. We picked up
everything that couldn't be sucked up by a vacuum cleaner.

Why clean when you have hired someone to do it for you....right???

Well the maids were late getting there, so when I went thru the house with the
landwitch they were still there. They were working.

When she called last night, I asked how the maids did. Because I had
turned in my key, I couldn't go check. She said

"They did great considering what you left them."

Hello??? I was paying for it not her. Anyway the wonderful
conversation progressed and she finally said,

"To my calculations I owe you $1,000.00 plus interest which is
$66.00. Wells Fargo bill pay is down right now so I will try it again in
the morning and if it's still down, I will look for my old check book and write
you a hand check. If I were an "on top of it" landlord, I would just send
you the $66.00 and be done with it."

What the hell is she trying to say????? I paid $1,980.00 to move
in. First and last months rent, $200 cleaning deposit and $300 dog/kid
deposit (which I think is illegal to have an extra deposit for kids but they
used the dogs too). Okay so take away the first month's rent and you
have $1,240.00. So I am guessing she is keeping $240 for what
ever. I have painted the horrible bathroom, installed cable in every
room and 4 additional phone jacks, oh and had the tree branch removed...all at
my own expense on top of paying rent. AND SHE IS BEING BITCHY.

I guess I will see if I ever get my money back.....I am so glad my
renting days are behind me.

How is your week so

Oh my. Glad you're not giving that bitchy woman any more money. I hope you don't have any problems getting your money back.

Going through the same thing with our old apartment complex. They want to keep $400 bucks but they can't because it says in our lease they were supposed to notify us in writing and give us a chance to dispute. They never did, and now they won't respond. Small claims court here I come (and I'll win!)
