Getting cleaning and security deposits returned is occasionally a problem for tenants. Depending on the laws of your state, you should receive your deposits back within 14 to 30 days of moving out. If you don’t, send a request using this form.
Some landlords hold on to tenants' cleaning and security deposits as a matter of course. This is illegal -- within 14 to 30 days of moving out, depending on the laws of your state, your landlord needs to send you either your full security deposit back, or an itemized accounting of the deductions taken from it. If you don't receive either your deposit or a statement within that time frame, send a request using this form.
