Hi. I live in Austin, Tx and in January a friend and I were going to get an apt. together. We found a place we both liked and had signed agreements to move in. B/c she did not have a check or cash on her, I agreed to pay for her deposit (385.00) with the verbal agreement that she would pay me back within two weeks. In February she was fired from her job. In March, I backed out of the lease agreement b/c she had not paid me back yet. It is now mid May and I have only received $50.00 frome her (5/4/01) I have documents showing that I paid for both deposits, and documents stating that she would pay me back in full by the end of February. She is no longer returning my calls or emails. I want to know, A - can I sue her? B-can I request interest to be paid on what she owes me? C- What are the processes and costs (for Austin, TX) to take her to small claims?
