This man was the owner of Four Season Rentals and had a small house to try to rent in Donnelly, Idaho which is near the new Tamarack Resort. I came to him with good credit and high recommendations from another landlord in McCall. There were various things wrong with the house, starting with the horrible condition of the walls and ranging to the electric heaters and the stove having no knobs, the place was in very poor condition but he promised that all of it would be taken care of in a timely manner. This man never once followed through on a single item that he said would be fixed. Towards the end of the lease, I informed him a couple of months early that I would like to be out one month earlier than the actual termination date of the lease. He told me that many people had contacted him regarding rentals and that it would be fine because he would not have a problem re-renting the house early. In the next two months, I kept contacting him telling him that it would be fine to show the house anytime he wanted to prospective renters. He kept put it off saying that he would rather wait until closer to my move out time. He never once took anyone there which did make me suspicious. Sure enough, when it came time to for me to get my deposit back, he refused saying that it was because I left early! What a jackass!

AUTHOR: MWood - (United States of America)

I owned the management company that handled the property, I was not the landlord. My job was to protect the owner's interests. The tenant failed to mention that she owned five dogs. The owner of the subject property was hesitant to rent to someone with so many dogs but made an exception for the tenant.  The owner was assured by the tenant that the home and carpets would be thoroughly cleaned upon her departure. 

When she indicated she planned to move prior to lease termination I advertised for a new tenant. The plan was to have a new tenant in place to take over the remainder of her lease.  I was assured that the home would be left clean and presentable. It was not. Due to pet odor, dog hair, filth on the walls and pet stains on the carpet I was unable to rent the property until the carpets and home could be cleaned. 

The cleaning costs and delay caused by the failure of the tenant to leave the home in rentable condition cost the owner of the home money. His costs were covered by the tenant's cleaning deposit per the terms of the tenant's signed lease agreement. 

I know that most pet owners are responsible and dependable but sadly, after this incident,  the owner of that property refused to rent to pet owners ever again.

Bottom line: She lost her deposit for failing to clean up after her dogs, not because she broke her lease and moved out early.
