ON 6/1/10 A move-out walk through inspection was performed. Present was the inspector (Tina Harris) and myself (ex-tenant). After spending approximately 10-15 minutes inspecting the apartment, Ms. Harris then signed and provided me a copy of the move-out inspection results which indicated no damage to the apartment. Two weeks later upon receiving my security deposit it showed a 266.67deduction for an alleged 1 inch tear in the vinyl flooring in the kitchen which necessitated the replacement of the entire kitchen and dining room vinyl floor. There was also a deduction of 50.00 for removal of an item left beside the dumpster which I am not contesting. Please note that no damages were seen or indicated by Ms. Harris during the walk through of my apartment which was clean and void of all furniture and items at the time. Upon speaking with her in-office on 6/18/10 she indicated that 4 days after I moved out the maintenance man informed her that there was a tear in the vinyl in the kitchen. I am contesting the withholding of the 266.67 from my deposit. The uncashed check for 513.33 (the amount sent to me) was returned to Ms. Harris on 6/18/10 in-office. Subsequently various excuses were offered by Ms. Harris as to why this damage was not indicated at the time she inspected the apartment. I am seeking the return of 780.00 due to me as the amount owed for my security deposit.
