Legal Question

Asked on: 1/27/10, 6:27 pm

When I moved into apartment I paid a $600.00 deposit. When I moved I out of my apartment I had utilities disconnected from my name. The gas and water companies turned off the utilities instead of putting utilities into landlord's name. I also had the carpet professionally cleaned prior to moving out. The landlord charged me $255.00 and said the charges were for having utilities turned back on, having to buy 2 space heaters to keep the apartment warm, of which he charged me for one space heater and having carpets cleaned. Landlord accused me of lying and said I did not have carpets cleaned. I have the receipt to prove I did. Am I responsible for the Gas and Water companies being turned off? Can the landlord charge me for a space heater and charging me for having carpets re-cleaned?
