It is done.
I am moved out of my ghetto hovel (sob!).
I will not be getting my deposit back. Even though the carpets had lived through several tenants before us, including a long stint with a rottweiller, we finished 'em off.
After five years, they cannot charge me for painting, which it also desperately needed even before we moved in.
But in spite of those facts, I am sure they will keep my entire deposit. They sent me a letter telling me they were going to bill me for the tree service required to take care of the tree in front, in spite of the fact that I have a letter I faxed to them TWO YEARS AGO advising them that the tree needed some love.
Now we're waiting on the eviction of the flaky tenant living in my (future) house. I figure I'll be in around October 9th.
So I've got 2 1/2 weeks with the MIL.
Wish me luck.
