Basically the mice at my apartment complex have caused me total damages of $1,080 and I am looking to get some of that money back. Here is a letter I wrote my apartment complex explaining everything:
I currently live in building 17 apt 102, and I have had some issues with rodents at my building. Several times I have notice either a mouse of a chipmunk run by the front of my building and by my patio. Last week I had to take my car in for service and they told me that a rodent had chewed through several wires causing a good bit of damage. I went ahead and ate those costs of $500. Now today I had to bring my car in again for service and sure enough a rodent had chewed through the wires, this time costing me $580. The first $500 I don't care about, I write that off as my loss, however I am hoping we can work out an agreement with the second charge of $580. My ideal situation would be that the $580 is deducted from my monthly rent of $1,045 as the rodent problem at my building caused the damages. I have all the paper work from the dealerships showing that it was indeed a rodent that caused the problem. In addition both of these damages caused my car not to start correctly on Sunday mornings, ruling out that it could have happened at my work. Please feel free to either email me back at this address, or you can call me at one of two numbers:
I am hoping we can come to some sort of agreement and I look forward to hearing back from you."
Anyone know if I have a chance at this working out or is it stuff shit for me?
Btw I am in no way looking to sue anyone, just wondering if I have legal grounds for what I'm asking. Thanks in advance!
