Searches aren't providing anything, so does anyone have a particularly good recommendation? The more tenacious the better. I'm the tenant and my wife and I have been receiving threats from the property manager along the lines of "we'll show whenever we want, or sue you for lost rental opportunities," and lost of ...or else's. The rants have been based around not making appointments (we agree to each and every one made), and in the latest resulted in a voicemail full of profanity, accusing us of having stolen her lock box and key (which is on our door). Explaining that she was wrong, even sending her a picture of it on the spot got us nowhere. Had to get the owner involved, and he says it's between us - he's out of it. An hour later, "sorry, we were at the wrong house."

I see bad things happening in the end with the deposit, and want to make sure I already have all messages, e-mails, and texts to someone in preparation for, well, whatever happens. We only have to ride it out until the end of the month, thankfully.

Appreciate whatever recommendations you have.

Legal Aid has an entire housing division. But you have to meet income eligibility.

I would suggest not retaining a lawyer until they actually tell you they aren't going to give you back the deposit. You could be wasting time, and money by retaining a lawyer when you really don't need one. Most landlords, even if mad, will return the deposit unless there is something obvious, and if you disagree then sue.

You can also find tenants' rights resources and advocate for yourself.

Yeah, not going to contact anyone until it becomes an issue. Just don't want to waste days looking for someone when I need them.
