I tried to make it more clear here since the previous question may be confused to you the way I explain. how much does it cost if we want to hire an attorney to get the deposit back?
I wait until April 22`st 2011, since we moved out on March 31st 2011.we have not received any statement or security deposit from my landlord.
The landlord refused to give us the address so we have a real estate agent help to dig out her tax address. and send her email and certified mail.
what can we do to this landlord and the real estate agent? we asked the agent for business card twice, but he won’t provide.he asked us to sign a paper, he never gave us a copy as he promised. we found his realty online. we did take lots of pictures when we move in and move out. we hired a professional to clean the carpet, and change a new window blind for her. we have had the agent sign the paper stated that the unit is clean and in good condition. shall we get the full refund?
Thank you very much for your help

What can we do if we found the condominium not cleaned and lots of problems as we do inspection after move-in?
We moved into a personal owned condominium end of June, and we were asked to sign a lease with the landlord on June 4th while holding the condominium,and pay him the whole month and deposit, at that time the landlord still lived there, she told us she will clean up the apartment before we move in.but when we moved in, we just noticed that she didn’t clean the apartment at all, only hire somebody to clean the carpet.
we live in California, please let me
point out some major problems here,
1. we found the faucet broken and leaking underneath, there is mold there since it’s not cleaned. we have two kids, one is 2 years old, the other is new born. I’m afraid it will affect their health.
2. the shower faucet is too old,so we can’t adjust the temperature, we told the landlord, he doesn’t want to fix it.
3. she stored over ten boxes in her storage.
4. the refrigerator is not working well,
