Most landlords require that rental tenants provide a security deposit which is used to ensure the tenant performs the obligations under a lease. Most leases contain provisions that if a tenant pays rent on time and causes no damage to the premises beyond ordinary wear and tear, they are entitled to a full return of their security deposit. Unfortunately, some landlords do not fulfil their obligations under a lease and do not refund security deposits in a timely manner. This Security Deposit Demand Letter is designed for use by a tenant in writing to a landlord requesting a full return of the security deposit. This demand letter requests that the deposit be returned within ten days and if not, states the tenant’s intention to take legal action.

General Information
Security Deposit Demand Letter

When you rented your residence, chances are that you provided a security deposit.  This is money used to secure the performance of a lease. The deposit may be retained by the landlord for, among other things, any unpaid rent or utility bills owed by the tenant, payment for damages beyond normal wear and tear, any cleaning the tenant agreed to in the lease.

If you, as the tenant, have fulfilled all of your obligations under the leasehave paid the rent in full and on time, have left no financial obligation to the landlord, and have caused no damage beyond ordinary wear and tear, you are entitled to a full return of the security deposit.  Landlord must return the security deposit with interest or give his tenant written notice of damages being claimed within 30 days of the tenant moving out.
But what happens if the landlord doesnt return your security deposit?  The first thing you should do is send a letter requesting that he/she do just thatreturn your deposit.  And if the landlord has missed the time limit for returning your deposit, you can and should demand that the entire security deposit be returned to you.

If the landlord fails to comply with this request, the next step may be taking him/her to court.

Re:  Deposit for [Insert Your Name], formerly of [Insert Your Old Address]


Dear [Insert Landlords Name]:

I was formerly your tenant at [insert your old address, include apt. number], which I vacated on _______________, 20__ pursuant to and in accordance with my lease dated _______________________, 20__.  Unfortunately, I have not yet received the return of my security deposit in the amount of Rs.____________________, for that rental property.  

You, as the landlord, are required to return to me, as the tenant, within thirty days of [my vacating the premises/the termination of the lease] the following:  i) my full security deposit or ii) a written notice of damages and itemisation of deductions and the balance of the deposit.  Because you have failed to send either, you have forfeited your right to withhold any portion of my security deposit.  

Please send a cheque payable to [your name, plus all your roommates on the lease], in the amount of Rs._____________________ to my address listed above within 10 days of your receipt of this letter.  If you fail to comply with this demand, I will have no choice but to file suit for the recovery of the security deposit, plus treble damages, court costs and lawyers fees.

If you have any questions regarding this letter, please do not hesitate to contact me at _______________________________________________________________.  Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.


Sincerely,
