Mr. and Mrs. David Allen of Ringgold, GA withheld $350 of my deposit which was initially $1000. His reason was "a non-refundable pet deposit" in which we NEVER AGREED TO. Mr. Allen "made this up" at the last minute.

He has no document or signed lease stating this as so. We also left his rental property in better condition than it was when we moved in; i.e, tearing down rotting wood on the porch, building it back better, paint, polishing of hardwood floors, extensive yardwork, etc.

Also an integrity issue but a legal one as well because, like I said, we NEVER agreed to pay such a deposit and it was not stated in the lease. He also neglected to give us a signed copy of the lease, so there is, in fact, NO signed lease at all. In other words, we never signed one. I really don't see how he can hold us to keeping our deposit, when he doesn't even have a signed document stating as such.

P.S. My pet did NO DAMAGE whatsoever. The tenants he had before us tore the place up bad. We also moved in on a family of rats, over a dozen that WE had to exterminate because Mr. Allen refused to do so. We also had a roof that leaked that Mr. Allen never fixed until we moved out; because, then, he was going to SELL the house.

So, in all actuality, we were supposed to hold possession of the rental property for a year, but after only 8 months, he announced he was selling the place and asked us to please move out.
