Elma, WA asked in Contracts, Products Liability and Landlord - Tenant for Ohio

Q: Recharging after itemized list and paid in full.

So, I moved out of my apartment mid December 15th and received a itemized list of the charges and I paid in full end of the month December. Mid February my friend in the apartment told me they replaced the carpet. Can they recharge me again after 30 Days from when I moved out? Also, can they charge me once the sent me itemized list and I paid in full? Can they recharge me for something they find later?

A: The landlord can send you a bill. Nothing prohibits that. If you don't pay, they can sue you. Nothing prohibits that either. If they sue, the court will determine if you have any legal obligation to pay it.
