My property manager and landlord (the husband) did a move out walk through on my rental property. They verbal agreed that I pay $300 for damages and some painting. My property manager told me what they agreed on and I agreed as well. I signed the walk through paper with the property manager and my security deposit (minus $300) returned to me by the property management company. After the wife of the landlord moved back into the rental house she completely picked it apart and is demanding that I be held responsible for more damages (hundreds of dollars) My property manager disagrees and feels the property was in the same basic shape I found it in.

The landlord is now threatening to sue me? Can she do that? (the landlord husband is changing his story as well...and agreeing that there is more damage)

Can anyway help me with advice?

Yes, they can sue you. Do I think they will win? No --- especially if the signed document from the walk-through is available. I doubt that the property manager will lie or falsify the walk-through document. The property manager likely can qualify as an expert. The husband and his nagging wife landlord are just that, especially if this is/was their only rental property.

Stay calm. People talk and say all kinds of things. It will likely blow over.

If you get sued, make sure you show up in court and defend yourself. Otherwise they will get a default judgment against you.

Your landlord sounds like an idiot. If they wanted the premises back "exactly" like it was, they should have never rented the place. Likely this woman has issues in other areas of her life, but you are the outlet for whatever is actually bothering her.

Good luck.
