My question involves an eviction in the state of: Ohio
My wife and I rented an apartment for roughly 4 years. We put in a transfer request to rent a house. Our apartment is one of 16 in a single building. The landlord did an inspection prior to us moving out and everything was fine. We moved into one of the landlord's houses and signed a 1 year lease. Now the landlord is saying we owe almost 700 dollars in damages for the apartment and is saying if we don't pay the 700 dollars that he will not accept next month's rent and start the eviction process on our current lease.
Can a landlord evict us for repairs to his apartment after we already started a new lease with him on a house?
We never had bedbugs and landlord is saying we left the apartment infested with bedbugs. Can he charge us for bedbugs even though there are 11 other apartments in same building?
The carpet in the apartment is nearly 9 years old. Can he charge us for damage to the carpet where seams are at? (carpet started to fall apart at seams.)
