My wife and I recently decided to rent out her condo as she now lives with me and we are very new to the renting world so I have some questions. First she had one tenant prior to this new guy and the first tenant was pure awful, trashed the place, had animals in there, basically left it a shithole. I went in there after him repainted, cleaned and recarpeted the apartment. This new tenant moved in and said the condo is not up to standards after I have put roughly 2 thousand into refurbishing it. He has given me a list of demands that he wants me or he will take 'legal action' to get released from the lease. He is demanding back his 1600.00 deposit and first months rent. To do the repairs (which are purely cosmetic) it would take an additional 2 thousand dollars. I am at a loss at this point and would appreciate any insight.
