Sounds as if you may want to go to small claims court to get the rest of your deposit back if you have documentation that you left the place in good order.

As a landlord, I can tell you this one is wrong. She must be able to prove her damages in court. Sure, you can take her to court, but collecting is the issue. Landlords like this give us a bad name. She must be a little landlord, cheap and dishonest at best. While I agree with you, going to court and then collecting from her is your problem.

I had a similar thing happen to me, and found I was really screwed because it was the landlord's word against mine. The lesson for the future is to do a walk-thru with the landlord prior to leaving and have the landlord sign a statement saying the condition was acceptable. Your only recourse is probably small claims court, and that probably will be a hard case to win. You might check with your city govt. to see if any complaints have been filed by past tenants against your landlord for similar shenanigans. If so, that will help your case if you decide to sue in small claims. At minimum, you should file a complaint with the city.

I would def. file for small claims court and like above said- she can't charge for mold and light bulbs and half that stuff.
