My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of: California
My property management company fired the landlord, and another has moved in. The new landlord wants a copy of the lease I signed with the previously fired landlord, which I signed about a month before she was relieved of her duties. The new landlord states she wants a copy because there is no present one left on file, and to make sure the lease was done "right". I have not responded yet. Should I provide a copy? I am extremely leery. This has come up also when I challenged the fees being charged for paint in moving out of a previous unit when I outlived the paint life, advised in a certified letter that this was the third property management company during this paint life, and the fact I never received my final move out checklist or walk through from the previous landlord, and the fact that I didn't receive any itemization of costs they're tryna bill me for within the legally mandated 21 days for the state (didn't receive it for a month and a half, and the costs weren't a bill or itemization, they were written numbers/costs on a faxed sheet of paper from their corporate office to the new landlord to give to me .. nothing through US mail).
Should I provide this recent lease copy? ???
