Thanks; I've been a landlord for several years and don't do "inspections" because I expect them to tell me when they need repairs. Yes, I realize they paid the rent on time and that normal wear and tear is expected after 6 years. I was asking about the law on proration. I have their forwarding address and yes, both of them work. Of course I took pictures and we did a walk through. I sent them a rundown of all I've spent thusfar and told them I would like to hear from them by next week. Yes, it's business, but it's also diplomacy.
