Legal Question

Asked on: 8/08/13, 7:42 pm

I recently purchased a condo "as-is" in Southern California that was occupied with a renter/tenant. Upon close of escrow, I was transferred the tenant's deposit. When the tenant moved out about 2 weeks after closing, I noticed deep scratches in the floors (like from moving furniture) and the house still smelled of pets and had pet dander in the nooks and crevices of the building. I was wondering if I could still deduct repair and cleaning costs from the tenant's deposit or am I out of luck because of the "as-is" clause. Thank you
