Can my landlord send me to collections, if so when? OR does she have to take me to court first?
Ask for the receipts to prove how much the landlord paid. Most likely you will see that you do, indeed, owe the $67. Obviously YOUR definition of "very clean" is different that the landlord's definition. If you don't pay what you owe, they can send your account to a collection agency if they want. If you don't want the hassle of going to court, pay the $67. Here is a novel idea! Look up your state statutes on landlord/tenant laws and READ THEM!!!! Then you will know what your former landlord can do and you won't have to ask the "idiots" on Yahoo Answers.

Aren't you rude? They are not idiots. They are good people who honestly are trying to help you out. The landlord has to send you a bill and give you 30 days to pay. If you do not pay after 30 days they can send you to collections for an unpaid bill. Going to court will allow them to garnish your wages for their money, which they can not do without a court order.

Soooo ... don't pay the $67 and let your former landlord ruin your credit. He will do just that, you know. It is not expensive at all to have a collection placed on your report; a LOT less than the $67 you owe, Doesn't seem very smart on your part to ignore the bill, now does it? Pay the money & move on with your life.

They don't HAVE to take you to court. They only take you to court if you don't pay and they feel like suing you. Did you ASK for the receipts? It is YOUR responsibility to prove you do NOT owe them.
