So I moved into this house last under kind of strange circumstances. First, there was no lease, second I met the property owner for all of five minutes, third he never gave me his address so I could send him rent (I eventually tracked it down and made payments every month) and finally we never discussed when I was to move out. Now he is suing me for property damages. I Just kind guessed I should be out in May (it was a seasonal rental home), so early may I found a house and started moving in. I paid some friends to move my stuff for me. I had hired someone to clean the house the last week of May. Well in-between the time I had moved out and before the cleaners started his son went in to the house and it was a mess and there was 3 inches of water on the floor in the basement, not sure why but I had not been there for a couple of weeks(He apparently took pictures). The cleaners cleaned it the next day. He is suing me for 1800$ in damages. Should I get a lawyer or do I have nothing to worry about?
