Question: Home I was renting was forclosed on and Purchased on short sale. When my lease was up my landlord gave me a 45 day notice to move. Now they want me to pay 4300 for redoing the house. The house was not in good shape when I moved in. I cleaned the carpet when I moved. Now couple of the charges are professional carpet cleaning, deep carpet cleaning, de order carpet, cabnets, counter tops, doors replacement. I was in the home 7 years. They want me to pay for them to redo home so they can sell. There was nothing wrong with these things they replace. One door had shifted. were and tear. Help

Answer: You do not owe money for normal wear and tear and do not owe for any improvements they want to make. Only if you caused damage would you owe money and they would have to prove you did cause damage. Sit tight. Since you are out of the house, the only things they could do would be to not return your deposit (if there was one) or sue you. If you are sued, you should go to court and defend yourself. If they refused to return your deposit, you could sue them in Small Claims Court. GOod luck!!
