I dont know if this is the right group but I just need to vent some frustrations right now. I had rented a home from this guy Chad. Well, I thought he was a good, fair, nice person/ landlord. Long story short, I had to move, and he still owed me 250.00 which he said will pay me when he gets a new tenant, and I said that’s ok I can wait. Well now its May and I finally got a hold of him now hes saying that it cost over 600.00 to have the house cleaned ( which he did himself) and he wasn’t going to give me what was owed to me.
Im not a slob and when I left of course I did minor cleaning. Like clean counters, vacuuming ,mopped the kitchen floor, etc. nothing major because he still had 300.00 deposit for cleaning. I figure he can rent a rug doctor for 80 bucks and pocket the rest of the deposit.
I dont know what bothers me more though…. the 250.00 he owes me or the fact that I did trust him to be a good and honest person. When I talked to him I kept repeating to him “I thought you were a good man” over and over. Why in hell when it always come to money people change? I have never fought over money, its either I have it or I dont and it did hurt me that he did this or I wouldn’t be so frustrated now. Anyway thanks for letting me vent, but any thought would help too.
