TO: Colony Square apt.

FROM. Michael Adams 2nd.

In reponse to the list of damages you sent dated 7/17/15 which I didn’t receive until this date, 7/24/15. I am writing to dispute the following charges against my security deposit.

As required by California law, I am responding to you by by hand delivery within 7 days of when I received the list, indicating in detail my disagreement relative to the charges listed.

Carpet replacement, unit cleaning, and unit interior painting. I can show proof of there being no legal right for you to deduct those charges from my security deposit.

A total of all disputed charges amounts to 652.00 Please refund this amount of my security deposit promptly: 652.00

Please note that under California law, the security deposit is considered the lawful property of the tenant until the landlord establishes a right to the deposit or portions thereof. Within 21 days after termination of occupancy and not thereafter the landlord may commence an action in a court of competent jurisdiction for a money judgment for damages which he [or she] has claimed or in lieu thereof return the balance of the security deposit held by him [or her] to the tenant or any amount mutually agreed upon in writing by the parties.
