Today, I got a citation from my landlord because my puppy couldn't make it to the grass and peed in the shrubs. Later in the evening, I got a citation that my music was too loud. Until I'd submitted my 30-day notice yesterday, no one ever had a problem with me FML

Since OP submitted a 30 day notice to move, I figured that would be a given.

He wants the money. He's going to pull every shady trick he can to get it.

Yea OP, just do your best to do absolutely nothing until you're out. Or maybe take note in some way of what you're doing so there is proof if it is needed.

Is your landlord stalking you? How does he know your puppy peed in the shrubs?!

give him a reason to cite you, play Justin Bieber music on blast at 3 in the morning

What's he gonna do, kick you out? I don't know Ohio law, but in California, the only way a landlord can keep your deposit is if he has documented physical damage to the property beyond normal wear and tear. Noise complaints, pets urinating outside, or any other petty complaint is not a valid reason to keep a deposit.

I think OP means he's trying to keep the deposit via excessive fines that'll add up to the deposit amountamount

The argument is that in many places landlords can't issue citations. A landlord in Ohio (the place in the story) must justify the "citations" in court, or face severe punishment in court.
