From December 2011 til June 2014 we rented a 2 bedroom 2 bath apartment at the address of Apple valley, Ca 92308. We signed a year lease and had a deposit of $725.00 with $725.00 a month rent. There was 2 adults and 1 dog. In March of 2013 we added another occupant (my son) and the rent went up to $745.00 with an added $20.00 to the deposit totalling the deposit to $745.00. In September 2013 my daughter came home, and we notified our landlord David Riggio. In December 2013, we had to decide whether to sign another years lease for $765.00/mo or go 6 months for $795.00/mo or month to month for $815.00/mo. We decided to do the month to month because we needed a bigger place. In the beginning of May 2014 I spoke with David on the phone and told him that we were looking to move and would be meeting with the prospective landlord on a home. Mid May I had told David that we were approved and we would be moving. David had verbally told me that since we had been such great tenants who had never been late on rent and never had any problems with, that he would work with us without the 30 day notice to move. Also, if we cleaned the apartment and shampooed the blonde carpet prior to returning the keys, then he wouldn’t charge for those fees. In good faith, upon our agreement on June 5, 2014 we were completely out of the apartment and had thoroughly cleaned everything including raking the back yard, cleaning the kitchen, bathrooms, bedrooms, all ceiling fans and adding a new filter to the AC unit. We hired a professional carpet cleaning crew, who did both bedrooms and living room carpet, costing us out of pocket $100.00. We swept out the garage and left the keys where David requested. June 16. 2014 we received an itemized statement regarding the security deposit refund from David Riggio. This statement did not include the correct deposit withheld, $745.00 it says $725.00. Then there is prorated rent for June $380.24. Damage to carpet due to large dog, substantial pet odor $300.00. Touch up paint $250.00 Reasonable cleaning charges $125.00. Total due to owner $330.24, total waived by owner $330.24. August, 2014, I mailed a rebuttal letter to the landlord, David Riggio, along with the CA.gov consumer affairs laws regarding refunds on security deposits of a rental unit. We were unlawfully charged for cleaning, carpets and apartment along with touch up paint. I have pictures to show how we left the premises along with the cleaning crew finishing off with the carpets. I have not heard anything from David Riggio since. The letter was received by David Riggio on August 18, 2014 at 4:31pm.
