Here is the situation.
3 months ago I gave a landlord a $585 security deposit for leasing a townhouse at school in michigan. 2 months ago I had some personal issues arise and will not be able to attend school in Michigan and have to go to school back home in Wisconsin. My name was taken off of the lease and he found someone else to rent the townhouse and they paid the security deposit.
This man claims that he can keep my $585 free and clear if he so chooses and it is up to him if he wants to give my security deposit back. We have talked back and forth for the past 2 months and he just says well I don't know what I want to do quite yet. Being a security deposit and not rent, I feel like legally he can't keep the money.
My dad has a buddy in the real estate field and he said its a load of bull what he is doing.
So I just want to know legally what I can do, if I have to get an attorney involved I will, I am just trying to avoid having to pay one.
Please Help Me!
