I'm stuck in an issue with my ex-landlord. I vacated the apartment, Landlord inspected the apartment, and gave a Bank Check for the security deposit. The Next day, the landlord found a repair and blocked the check from being encashed. Now, He's demanding the costs of the repair before clearing the check.
I don't want to pay the costs as I'm not sure how did it happen. What can I do to force my landlord to clear the check ?
