An Idaho attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for four weeks. No one here could predict what they would do. It's good that you made arrangements to return the printer. If you haven't already, let them know about the arrangements you made so they don't move forward... Read more »

Q: My landlord is keeping my pet deposit for scratches on her door that she showed me. I couldn't see any. I've had people

Over and they could not see any either. I took pictures but my phone got stolen. When I moved out I gave her a demand letter which she did not respond to.

It is the security deposit that landlords are NOT entitled to keep. If your contract HAS a provision for a pet deposit, the landlord’s keeping it COULD BE a pitifully slow way for her to build her fortune, one pet deposit after another! But I doubt that.
