My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of: California
I just moved out of my apartment after living there for almost 2 years. I cleaned this place for 14 hours. I just got an estimate stating a total of $1800 worth of work. My deposit was $1200, so they are saying I may owe them $600. This place was pretty clean, and there were some things like the blinds were bent and the screens needed to be repaired, but overall it was clean. With all my other apartments, I have gotten back the majority of my deposit (usually no more than $200 worth of cleaning they took). I was under the impression that they would take into consideration "wear and tear"... what are my options when it comes to fighting this if they decide to take all of it plus more and "wear and tear". I stupidly did not take pictures prior to leaving keys, but supposedly the apartment take video... which I am fine with because it'll show how clean it was.
