Re: Landlord wants me to move 4 days early .. and.. by Garry (Iowa) on September 24, 2017 @12:06

                              
You are correct. You paid till the end of the month, and you do not have to be out till the end of the month. The LL must give you a 24 hr minimum notice of coming in to your property. You can request that you be present when anyone comes in, but that does not mean the LL will abide by that. However, if you are not there, and the LL wants to have another person whom you don't know, come in to do work on the property, the LL needs to stay there to protect your personal items from being broken, stolen, etc.
You do have the right to refuse anybody, including the LL, from coming in, as long as you still have possession. If the LL does not like it, he can go to court to ask a judge to give him access to his own property. That's not going to happen, as it would take 2-4 weeks to get into court. You will be gone by then.
The main problem you are going to have is, after you are gone, the LL will probably make up reasons to keep all of your deposit, in retaliation for you not cooperating with him. To try to counteract that, you need to leave your place extremely clean, with no damage. You will need to take pics of every room, closet, cupboards, insides of all appliances, walls, etc. Leave nothing behind, including garbage.

You also need to have 2 witnesses look at the place when you leave, that can show up in court if need be, to testify as to how you left the place. If possible, meet the LL at the place, and do a move-out inspection together. Give him the keys back, and give him a forwarding address in writing as to where to send your deposit statement.

"You also need to have 2 witnesses look at the place when you leave" WHAT? Where is that a legal requirement? You are just making sh#t up!

    And where did I use the word "legal" anywhere in my post??? The use of pictures, documents, and witnesses is usually needed to be able to prove a person's case, if at any time 2 parties end up in court. ANY lawyer or judge in the country will tell you that. Most of the time, it's just using good old fashioned common sense that tells you to do these things

Since I fully expect this landlord to cheat me out of any deposit, I plan to clean nothing. Pickup nothing. Not even pick up the plastic and paper dishes from the sink.

Even the final utility bill will be hers to pay. Already gave the landlords address to send the final bill after the last readying on Oct 31.

I am moving across the country and she knows it.

    I disagree with you, but then again, what LL is going to chase someone clear across the country for an amount above your sec. deposit. It's still in your best interest to take pics when you move. Because if there is TOO much damage left, the LL could file vandalism charges against you, and that could lead to a warrant for your arrest anywhere in the country.

      Vandalism charges? Where the hell do you come up with this crap? The landlord wants the tenant out early to get the place repaired and painted. Where was vandalism discussed? The OP just said they were not cleaning up and you equate that to vandalism? You must be on medication, drugs or drinking to come up with such preposterous scenarios.

      Again, you seem to be out of your league. The tenant stated she was just not cleaning because she felt the landlord was already going to screw her over for the deposit. So where do you come up with vandalism from what was posted? Do you really believe not cleaning and leaving some trash amounts to vandalism? Your post just confuses the problem and does nothing to constructively add to help answer the tenants concern about the landlord violating her rights. Just maybe you are not as informed as you think you are about landlord issues. Just reading the nonsense in your post answers shows you are very ignorant on many landlord tenant issues. Maybe waiting and reading what other landlords post will help educate you and show you what the real issues are, instead of the ones you make up!
