When I moved out of an apt six years ago, I was on a month-to-
month as the original lease had expired three years prior.
That was honored for all other tenants I knew had moved out--
they gave 30 days notice only and also got their deposits
returned. Last fall I was summoned for rent I owed--over
$1700!!! They reverted to the original lease and have gone
after me for the last 7 months as if I had any money. I am 66
and still working, but they have drained all my savings and
still hven't settled. At the time, I owed $200 for the last
month I lived in the apartment, but figured the landlord would
take that out of my $400 deposit--especially since I didn't
hear from him...until six years later! And then they tacked
on interest for all those years. Be very careful, Phillip...I
am being sold down the river, so to speak, and it still isn't
