I mean it’s easily 200 to move the sofa sometimes more, why would you think that’s free? And the paint for the walls is also not free as well as the labor to sparkle and paint everything + clean the entire apartment cuz it doesn’t sound like you did that either lol I’m assuming you stayed past the rental agreement and that triggered the next week of payment. Half the deposit is standard for the mess left behind Again - it’s not their job to dismantle your sofa. Depending on size that could’ve been $300 for labor and services. I just paid 270 to have mine picked up, lease agreements usually have a standard cleaning fee and yes it can be up to half the deposit. This is why it’s generally a good idea to do all that stuff yourself if you want to even hope to expect a full deposit back!
