How long does a landlord have to return security deposit to tenant after lease is up?
01/08/2007 - Landlord Tenant - State: ALL #229
Tenant A fulfilled the terms of the lease agreement with Landlord A. Tenant A gave Landlord A 30 days notice, kept the property in excellent condition, returned the keys and left a forwarding address. Tenant A is expecting the security deposit to be refunded, but Landlord A has not refunded the security deposit nor discussed it with Tenant A. Will Tenant A receive the refunded security deposit and when?
In most states, Landlord A has 14 - 30 days to refund the security deposit to Tenant A or provide an itemized statement detailing the deductions made from the security deposit. Tenant A may contest Landlord A's right to retain the security deposit through small claims court.
