Accidental Fire Liability - CT
Asked Jan 24, 2011, 09:23 AM
I am a renter in CT. My apartment was in an accidental fire(stove was accidentally turned on without my notice, the indication light on stove might have failed to turn on and eventually the stove caught fire). Fire Marshall said the electric stove has a burner and that caught fire and it was purely accidental. Now my landlord is trying to get withhold my security deposite and go after me for all damages of the fire. The landlord for the building should have insurance but seem to go after me for the full amount(including fees that I did not agree upon, i.e. removal cost). What should I do?
