House owner not returning deposit amount
« on: August 30, 2013, 08:23:15 PM »
I vacated rented apartment on 15-Jun for which I had given 80K deposit back in Jan-2011. The owner seems to have sold the apartment now. For 2 months, I had been following up with owner for refund, he never denied or indicated holding back any part for damages etc. After 2 months, he said he will keep 20K & refund 60K. He is not providing me line level details of damages and quoting it as "I have arrived at the amount considering 50% of the re-painting cost of around 30K, bathroom door fixing incl. handle and fixing tap / other fixtures particularly in master bed room." The damages he is talking about is due to seepage of water and normal wear-tear. As of today he has refunded 60K. What can I do to get my 20K? Please help.

Is this a consumer court issue or civil court. Please advise.

I do not have an active agreement. We signed one in 2011, but it got expired. I have all conversations in an email where he has told that he is holding 20K.

Should I do a FIR in police for cheating? What all do I need for it? Should I also include mental torture due to this?
Should I be sending a legal notice? What all do I need for it?
What else can I do to get my 20K?
What is general probability of me getting my money back in such scenario?
What will be approximate cost for all of above? Is it worth the effort?

you can approach either, now for filing recovery suit in civil court will require a lawyer, where as file in the consumer forum you can do it yourself. Choice is yours
