Using security deposit as last month rentWe are forced to move because our upstairs neighbors are very noisy, we do not want to move. We have been complaining to the landlord over a year to ask the neighbor to carpet her apartment which is in the coop bylaws. Nothing happened. We have complained to the management; nothing happened. We have no choice, but to move. In addition, the upstairs neighbor moved in a boyfriend (who is not on the lease) and his five year old. There are 5 people upstairs (2 adults 3 kids) and no carpeting and; no consequences. They also leave their kids unsupervised regularly, who like to tear the place apart…In addition, on one occasion when the kids were left unattended we called the police and the boyfriend threatened to beat up my husband, this was prior to him moving in.My landlord has a history of not giving back the security deposit, we heard of 3 tenants, who did not get their deposits back. We are going month-to-month now and when we rented the apartment as is from the previous tenant without any renovation "as is" and we paid for painting the place. We want use the security deposit for our last month rent since we know we will never see that money again.November 23 2013 - Brooklyn00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
