Wow, Sued by Tentinger Properties

Wow, served with papers last night. Looks like I’m getting sued by Tentinger Properties for $1700 a year after moving out of our place on Governor St. in Iowa City. I have to say, I didn’t see that one coming…especially after they took my security deposit and never communicated with me until they decided to serve papers.

What can I say? Life’s full of surprises…and this is why renting sucks.

Update 06/08/2011: Well we had court today. Judge ruled for us. We got an award of $580-ish, but we didn’t get our attorney fees covered. Both parties have 20 days to file an appeal. I guess we wait and see what happens…

Update 06/29/2011: Well, we got a check in our mailbox today for the amount awarded us by the judge. It was not from Tentinger Properties and there was no description in the memo field, but judging by the address and the name of the (new?) business, I think it’s a fair guess as to what it is for. We have to bring it to our lawyer before we can deposit it so that we can make official the satisfaction of the judge’s ruling… Not sure what exactly that is about, but I’m glad I’ll be able to put this whole ugly business behind us.
