We recently rented a vacation house and after checking out and getting home the owner then sends a nasty email stating that all of these damages were done to the house. And that he has filed a police report against us and then cashed our security deposit check. How and what rights am I allowed in order to fight these charges - he has since sent pictures and is demanding $2000.00 + dollars for repairs. Every single item he is claiming that is damaged we dont agree with. How can I prove that we didnt do it or what rights do I have?
And when we checked out he came and met us and walked over the house with us. Unfortunately I didnt get anything signed with his ok, but if the house was so awful wouldnt he have noticed when we were doing our walk thru?
