the place i used to live is giving me the run around on getting my deposit back. is there a state agency i can call?
read your lease, how long do they have to return your deposit. did you get a clean "walk through" when you left? file a small claims suit if they don't give you your deposit by the time allowed in the lease.
I'd say consult an attorney. That would be your best and quickest option.
No! take them to small claims cheaper and no attorney to take their cut.
