What is the name of your state? Maryland

i did not give the requested 60 day notification upon moving out because of extensive water damage to the apartment that was first reported to the landlord 6 weeks prior to moving out. the water damage was so bad that the tenants below me complained of water dripping into their apartment. i received a letter saying that i not only do not get my deposit back, but that i owe over $400.00.



An "eye for an eye" mentality does not hold merit where a written lease agreement is present. Assuming that the water damage occurred as a result through no fault of your own, the occurence gives you no cause for breaching the lease agreement.

There were other legal means you could have utilized.
