Do I have a case? Landlord refuses to return my deposit, or rent.?
Fast forward to the 15th, I'm about to move states to the new place, and I get a phone call from the landlord saying that they rented the house. I demanded my deposit and rent back. He said he'd send me a check for 500.00 for half a month worth of rent. He said the deposit was non refundable, and that I didn't sign a lease or move in. And that I occupied the space for half a month and if I didn't physically live there, it was my problem.
Do I have a case? I feel like I"m entitled to the full 2000.00 back.
