Landlord Type: 
Private Landlord -- No Rent Control

I have rented this home for 6 years. I have a $6500 security deposit. The landlord stopped paying mort. and taxes over a year ago, and also declared Chpt.7 bankruptcy without telling me. and I learned of the foreclosure in November... NTS in Jan. and sold at Court House this month. (April 24,2013). I witheld the last months rent (April) and he filed a UD still pending. I had to hire a lawyer to defend and hope to clear it before the UD is unsealed and goes on my record. The irony is that the landlord has to progress the case. I cannot!
Meantime the new owner denies responsibility for the security deposit and I am compelled to move in 90 days. The new law suggesting the new owner is jointly responsible is being contested successfully due to poorly written language. It is the security deposit that I am upset about! I have met all my obligations and yet I am being screwed all around!!
SB 603 would have prevented this outright theft of my earnest deposit.
