Security Deposits

Deposit Return

When the tenant moves out of the unit, the tenant should give the landlord in writing a forwarding address as soon as possible. Within 14 days of the end of the tenancy, the landlord should return the deposit and an itemization of all deductions. If the landlord fails to send the deposit and itemization, the tenant can sue the landlord to get the deposit back. If the tenant fails to give the landlord a forwarding address to send the security deposit to within 60 days of the end of the tenancy, the landlord will turn the remaining deposit over to State Treasurer’s office as unclaimed property.
