Security Deposit by Dawn Rose (Pennsylvania) on December 26, 2017 @14:50

Tenant moved out leaving at least $4000 worth of damage. Tenant is demanding I pay security deposit because tenant claim she never received notice of non-payment. Tenant left keys in apartment November 1. Tenant sent instant message to me on December 1. I immediately answered and told tenant that letter was mailed and stated to her again that she is not getting her deposit and that I am going after her for damages. She is contending that I am legally at fault because of she did not receive letter with 30 days. Should I start legal proceedings now or wait until she sues me first. Pictures of damage and certified letter were sent to and tenant signed for both. Can she legally sue me?

"Can she legally sue me?"

ANYONE can sue ANYONE. So yes, she CAN sue you. But can she win?

If you have a CRRR receipt showing she signed for the letter within the 30 dsys required, then I don't see hiw she'd have a chance of winning on the grounds that you didn't send the notice.

But then in court she might claim that you deducted too much.
