Question: What if my former tenant sends me a demand for his security deposit?
Answer: The demand may be the first step leading to being sued by the tenant for his security deposit. You have seven (7) days to refund the entire deposit to avoid litigation. Or, you may defend your retention of the deposit. You bear the burden to justify your retention of the deposit. Assemble your documentary evidence showing your compliance with your required accounting, the tenant’s balance due, and the damage beyond normal wear and tear and seek the advice of your lawyer.
