Unfairly Treated AC

I have an update for you all on the landlord who is trying to keep our bond. For those who missed it, he’s refusing to give us (my boyfriend and myself) our money back because we made unauthorised renovations to his home. The way he puts it we sound like monsters, but I’ll tell you …
