The Old Apartment sent a screwy bill.

The former apartment sent a bill for 1,000$ saying that they had to replace the carpet and for some strange charges. $75 for rent. As well as a 465$ that would be half a month rent but we each paid our half so I don’t know where that was coming from.  Although there was no explanation what that was.  Actually, it was smaller than half a month. And a strange $50 fee with no explanation.

We paid rent up through the month we moved. We moved midway through the month but paid for the full month.

There was one darker spot on the carpet from a clear soda, sprite I think, that never came clean no matter how many times I cleaned it.  Puck knocked it off the counter onto the carpet while I was asleep on the couch one day.  The only other stuff was that the heavy traffic areas were darker even after several vacuuming passes.

They subtracted the cleaning deposit but not the pet deposit I paid. Where does a pet ‘depost’ go if it isn’t used to go against things like this? I would have rented a good carpet cleaner but Jeff said don’t bother. He wasn’t worried about it. So I didn’t.

They want payment in 14 days or else they will send it to collections.
