First time renting questions in Tampa, FL

I'm looking to rent a house in Tampa, FL (to live in, not a vacation), but I'm not sure where to start looking. I see all kinds of listings online, but I have no way of judging the worth of these - they look like cross linking listing spam and they make me hesitant to trust them. This is the first place I'm renting - everywhere else I've lived has been with friends and family. Where do I start? Suggestions on people to talk to or places to look for decent homes for rent? Also: What questions should I be asking prospective landlords?

When "don't worry about it" means "I'll demand payment four months later."

My landlord said not to worry about paying for a sculpture I damaged, four months later wants to take payment out of my deposit - and wants me to determine how much I should pay even though she knows I don't know anything about antiques and have no money after she made me move out. How do I deal with this in a mature fashion? [more inside]

I really can't afford another 2 months rent...

I submitted a form to the property management outfit of my apartment in April to move out. Come July, my expected move-out month, they say they can't find the form. The woman I spoke to about this said that they'll see what they can see and try to work with me, but if they end up saying I have to stay for another 2 months (60 days is required notice period) what are my options?

Recovering cost of cancelled security deposit

Can a landlord charge a tenant the cost of a cancelled security deposit check? My least ended 5/31. My landlord sent out the security deposit 6/29. I never received the deposit, and asked repeatedly that it be re-sent. She agreed to cancel the check and re-send 7/13. I gave her my address, and today a letter sent 7/15 arrived containing the deposit less the cost of cancelling the previous check. I was supposed to get the deposit within 30 days. Do I have any recourse here on recovering this?

What should I do about a dog that is not supposed to live in the building?

The renters upstairs have a dog. Our lease clearly states no pets, and the dog barks all the time. I've talked to the guys upstairs about the dog, and they told me he would only be there another week. That was one month ago, and I still hear and see the dog daily. Should I approach the landlord, or is that petty? [more inside]

Who can connect my apartment to the building's phone box?

Whose responsibility is it, and how much would it cost to get an outside electrician to do it? [more inside]
