my s landlords are taking me to small claims court for damages that were done to their house. when we moved out we got a letter in the mail stating what damages had been done and the cost to fix them. then after we got the letter we got court papers stating that they were suing us for 3500.00 when the papers that we rec'd were only 1000.00. can the tenants change the amount of damages after the letter of 30 notice goes out to the tenant? also they did a final walk through 2 days before we were suppose to move out to tell us about damages that they found that needed to be fixed. aren't we suppose to receive a 7 day notice on this? we also had a dog and it stated no pets in the lease however there was a verbal communication stating that we could get the dog but there is a $350.00 pet deposit which we never paid. is this in our advantage or their's????
