An apartment complex is withholding the security deposit of a disabled army veteran who says she’s entitled to the return of the money.
Wired PR News – A Dallas area woman is seeking the return of her security deposit from an apartment complex who claims she owes the money in accrued charges. As reported by CBS 11 News, Angela Bard, says she is owed approximately $822 from the Bella Vida at Ridgeview Country Club Apartment Homes that the apartment’s management will not pay to her.
As noted in the report, Bard, a 28 year-old disabled soldier, asserts that the apartment’s claims that she is liable for a list of charges, which includes unpaid rent and apartment damages, are unfounded. Her mother, Debbie Bard, is quoted by CBS 11 News as stating of the unit’s condition after she and her husband cleaned it, “That apartment was spotless. It was immaculate… There was no trash left behind, no trash bags. It was ready to be walked into and looked at by somebody ready to rent it again.”
Bard is quoted as stating of her need for the money’s return, “I am on V.A. disability, Social Security Disability. I live from month to month. I have almost no savings. I get help from my family.”
