  • We took an ex-landlord to small claims court to get our safety deposit back. He didn't want to give it because we put a temporary fence up and then we took it back down...he wanted it left up because obviously people would pay more for a rental with a fenced in yard. We won and before leaving the courtroom he yelled "I WANT TO COUNTER-SUE." So then we went back to court and he had a lawyer and we didn't and we still won. We waited a couple months without receiving our money, so we had to have the courts take it from his checking account (which we knew where he banked because it was stamped on the back of our return checks). The court got a letter from his wife saying they didn't pay because they didn't know they lost. idiots.

  • yes. we sued a local fence company for doing shitty work that they agreed to come back to repair, but months and numerous phone calls later, they never showed. we couldn't even get them to return our calls..until they were served with court papers.
    they decided to settle out of court. :))

  • I went to a lawyer who wrote to the person saying I would bring charges against them. They did not want that and settled the problem straight away. Quick. Cheap. Easy. Since then I have written a couple of letters to different companies and included excerpts from laws and regulations illustrating what they did wrong. They rectified the matters immediately because they did not want lawyers involved. I did my own research for these. Just the threat seems to be enough when they know they are in the wrong. Definitely no phone calls. Do everything in writing and keep copies.
