My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of: California
It was a month before the end of my lease when I got "Notice to PermanentlyPerform or Quit" from my apartment management.
They were requesting a pet deposit of $500.00 for my dog.
There was no way I would pay $500.00 when my lease is done next month so I called the apartment management.
I was told the pet deposit is required but they will return it to me when I move out.
I contacted the management office for my 30 day notice and etc., but the person I spoke with was not available.
I guess he is sick so he wont be in the office for 2 more weeks. I explained this situation to someone in our management office but they just kept saying pet deposit is not refundable and I would just have to wait till he comes back to work. Meanwhile they said they will try to talk to him and see whats going on?!?
I do not have his statements written on paper or anything because it was disccused over the phone.
Will I be able to get my pet deposit back? If not what can I do?
