Im confused, I lived in an apartment Upstate NY. I had no hot water for 3 weeks. I informed the landlord 3 days oafter moving in and continually called them about it and within 3 weeks they finally got around to fixing it. I had a broken stove in the kitchen for 2 weeks they finally replaced. A hole in the wall they never replaced until i moved out 5 months later, a hole in the kitchen window, and a chip in the living room window. I had to break the lease due to relocating for work 2 hrs away. I moved out January 12th. I also moved out becuase of 2 inches of septic sewage underneath my apartment that they didnt clean out for 2 weeks that i constantly informed them about. i took photos and videos of everything. I assisted placing an ad to find a tenant and agreed to leave my secruity deposit for them even though there were no damages. They were fine with this. Yesterday. The 27th. I recieved a phone call from them asking if i was going to be paying Febs rent. Confunsed i responded with i thought we agreed with the secruity deposit being left to them. The LL flipped out saying there taking me to court. Then they hung up. I called code enforcement because there is still feces in the basement below my apartment. The LL then called me back apologizing being all nice again..explaining how frustarting the other tenants in the bulding are being...asked for Febs rent again...stating there going to have someone Move in in a week, there paying Rent and deposit... and that i will get my deposit back. Im getting my confused now. I stated you can just keep my deposit. They flipped again saying were going to court. I said ok fine, just know that theres still feces in the basement i have pictures of that from when we first discussed it months ago, i have recent pictures dates and times that its still there, i have pictures of the hole in the wall and broken windows of prior to me moving into the aparmtent. They lashed at me saying that i put them there. I had witnesses prior to me moving in when i took these pictures of the apartment. This is getting out of hand i just want to live my life. I feel this LL is trying to get money and I dont know. Does anyone have advice or has anyone been in this situation before?? Thanks alot in advance.
