I loved everything about this apartment except for the landlord. Halfway through our year of rent, my roommate got a small cat for her birthday. The landlord contacted us telling us we needed to "Pay a pet deposit" within the next 10 days or we would be evicted. We went and paid the 'pet deposit', as it was noted on our receipt--$250, expecting to get it back if there was no damage done to the apartment. When we left the apartment, we received a letter from the landlord stating that the "Pet Deposit" was non-refundable, and that on TOP of this deposit, we would be charged $70 for steam cleaning the carpets. I understand the need for steam cleaning, but that should have come out of the deposit, and we should have gotten the rest of the money back. He told me "Pet deposits have always been non-refundable." Not only were we never told that it was non-refundable, but it was labeled a 'deposit' on our receipts. A deposit, by law, is returned if no damage has been done to the apartment. These are great apartments to live in, as long as you don't own pets.
