deposits & repairs (by livenotonevil [NC]) Posted on: Apr 12, 2019 1:21 PM
Message:

A tenant has consigned the lease and deposit, tho they weren't entitled to a refund of deposit because of collected refuse and abuse of premises according to the super.

A new occupant has wanted to claim the deposit although technically there wasn't any. I do not know if the new occupant bought the deposit.

Further complications include a balance of $300 plus for repairs and a new appliance. The superintendent said to have the new tenant reimburse the previous occupant for the repairs and new appliance and some rumblings were overheard.

What about the deposit, transfer, consignment of lease, repairs & new appliance in this brain buster moment? --24.74.xxx.xx

Plain and simple in black & white, consigning or subletting's a no no, hands down, of course. But here in NC the words are direct but the spirit may be flagging. Sorry. Go for it? --24.74.xxx.xx

Trying to understand your situation. Are you saying:

Your Tenant violated your Rental Agreement by damaging and leaving trash, moved out, and let someone else move in, in their place?

Who is the superintendent? Is that someone you have hired to manage the property?

Do you live far from the property and have no first-hand knowledge of the situation? You said "according to the super".

If I'm understanding this correctly, you need to immediately give notice to the Tenant of the breech of the agreement and insist it is all corrected immediately - within whatever timeframe dictated by NJ law. If the tenant does not correct the problems, evict. Hire an experienced eviction attorney. If you do not already know it, you can access your state's laws through a link in the upper left area of this page. read, print, study and apply them all - now.

And if the Super is someone you pay to manage the place, FIRE him/her. --68.10.xxx.x

Unless you documented in writing the condition and deductions during a departing and new occupant, you can't prove who did what and is responsible for anything. All you can do is tell the last occupant that when the tenancy is over, any deposit refund will be issued in both names unless they provide a release from the old tenant. --47.156.xx.xx

Uh huhm that's right, VA.

Right.

The super is a tradesman unemployed until this spring, living in a RV, no water no waste. Electricity unsure.

Since he is in the constr biz he's connected to ppl: roofers, bush hoggers, realtors.

IOW he lost youth and moxy, and constr is about smarts among other things.

I live 5 mi fr the rental and only visit once or so yearly, unbelievable, bucket lister and exile. So this became a hotbed or indulgence.

The super wants to buy an acre inside and he would relocate fr the farm and leave me with no one on site. --24.74.xxx.xx

Since the former tenant didn't pass on the key, the new tenant changed the lock, ok.

Since the former tenant allowed refuse to collect the super had to cart away, she's due no transferred deposit refund leaving the new tenant deceived since the old tenant advised the new one he could have the deposit transferred, bought it? Meanwhile the step-father awaits a refund for half of a new water heater to his new residence; jeopardy.

I mean they don't write 'em like this.

Among other things the property is being tied up to a click of friends keeping it in the circle since it's affordable, w/great schools, and the super doubles as a guardian; for any children and to repel an intruder. --24.74.xxx.xx
