    California: Lease states that I loose security deposit if I break lease.. for any reason.

    Funny that the moderator deleted my posted link to an article written by a lawyer which supported my position. Guess people around here get butthurt easily. Your interpretation of the law may not be right in real life situation. I represent myself in court as a landlord and have a good track...

    California: Lease states that I loose security deposit if I break lease.. for any reason.

    I always look at different sources as the laws change over time. CA and NY have similar laws regarding breaking a lease agreement early. Where the problem exists for the landlord is collecting the judgement. Some tenants will just skip out not caring about the law or bad credit rating they...

    California: Lease states that I loose security deposit if I break lease.. for any reason.

    That's why I looked up CA landlord/tenant law. I am very aware that states have different laws. Now everybody rise: here come the judge...:cool:

    California: Lease states that I loose security deposit if I break lease.. for any reason.

    I based my interpretation on CA law which I looked up which is similar to NY. In this case I can see monetary judgement for breach of lease against the OP and resulting damage to his credit score. If the OP feels he is obligated to get his security deposit back he will need to sue the landlord...

    California: Lease states that I loose security deposit if I break lease.. for any reason.

    Looked up CA law regarding this. I am a landlord in NY and been to court many times here. One advice I'll give you is look up the landlord/tenant law for CA yourself. The judge will base his ruling on the law not some here say from the internet. Here is a link to start with...

    Yes he can keep your security deposit plus costs of restoring the property to rental condition, advertising, rent loss incurred till new tenants(s) move in. Your landlord can sue you for up to $10,000 in small claims court.. I use this clause in all my Lease Agreements "All parties agree that...

    My furnace is out and the HVAC tech said it could take up to 3 weeks before I can get a new unit approved. Do I have to wait this long?

    In NY you as a landlord must find where your ex tenant is and then locate his/her assets yourself then obtain "execution" from the court. Once you do that you go to the Sheriff pay his fees and do the paperwork for him. Court and the Sheriff get their fees you get nothing Don't forget most...

    Its no wonder debt collection agencies don't last very long here. Those that do stay in business don't deal with tenant debt collection.

    State: NY You go to court to evict a non-paying tenant after serving them 3 day notice to pay or quit then the petitions. Court awards you possession and back rent along with court costs plus a Sherriff Warrant. What is the best way to collect the money awarded in the judgement? via Imgflip...

    It will be interesting to see what happens to the original poster of this thread. Very often laws are written but if nobody enforces them they are worthless. A judge can award so much money for say back rent and damages to a landlord but the court does nothing to collect it. Real Life in NY
