Pet charges in an apartment
I was cat sitting for my girlfriend when a maintenance man happen to stop by to fix something. The next day I got a note on my day saying I owe the property $300 for a pet deposit. The cat has since been returned, but can they really charge me the $300? I looked in my lease and it does state that they do enforce a pet charge even for temporary pets, but since the cat was only there for two days, is there a way for me to fight the charge? Wouldn't the maintenance man at least have to prove that cat was there which there is no way of doing? Thanks in advance.
