Q: The apartment i live in has a management corp. running the complex. Can i sue both owner & mgmt or just mgmt?

I did not know that i had to state a claim upon which relief could be granted in ordet to have a question answered sir.

Please forgive me. - - the question is this i have a lease with apartment complex. Section 1 states: Lease is between me and owner LLC, however Section 2 states: for landlord tenant relationship act 554.601 et seq. "the management corporation" is listed. No interaction with owner ever. All business during tenancy conducted with management corp. Can i sue both or only mgmt corp for my security deposit and constructive eviction? 1. I moved out due to no essential repairs were done. Can not use apartment as intended. 2. Have not received security deposit - - gave 4 day notice and have not received any communication with either party since moving out, it has been over 90 days. Whom should I sue?

A: You have not provided enough facts for me to be able to determine whether you have a basis to sue anyone. However, if you claim that the lease was breached by the landlord, your claim would be against the landlord, whom your refer to as "owner LLC", and not against any of the landlord's agents, such as the "management corp."
