So i posted awhile ago about problems with my downstairs neighbors and my landlord. Well 2 months later... he is going to let me out of my lease as of April 1st. We have to pay april thought as a penalty. Which i can totally understand. I've had to do something similar before. But he informed my mom that he was keeping my deposit to cover the ad that he put in the paper. WELL he told me the ad was $60 a week and i would have to pay half of it. On my figures at $30 a week for 6 weeks(max it figured it could be in more like 5 weeks though) is $180. So that means he still owes me $340. Even if i paid the whole ad i'd still get back $160. If i'm correct i think this is illegal. Doesn't he need to send me a reason for withholding my deposit along with reciepts? I think he's trying to take avantage of me and my mom(who is the nicest person every and nevers says no). I live in michigan btw. The reason he wanted the keys back to is because he just wants to get me out of the lease because he realized i can go in at anytime i want. But of Course! I'm still paying for it and check to make sure he's not turning the heat up and leaving it on when he shows it(which he was).
Sry so long
