Landlord
I left an appartment since March of this year, and the Landlord refuses to give me my deposit. Mind you we have video of him checking the appartment, and less than two weeks he has a new tenant. Is anyone know how I can get my deposit? Any input will help

Jay you need to first enquire of the landlord on what basis has he kept your security deposit. secondly if you left the apartment after the 4th of the month then he can hold that security for that reason. did the landlord have to clear the apartment of any of your belongings that could also be a factor.

Nope we left the house clean, I have video of him inspected the appartment. I left the first of March. The same day I give him back his key, he had someone who come look the appartment.

the first of the month is the beginning of a new cycle. He can use that also to say he kept the deposit because you left on the 1 and not the 31.

@niquee yes you are right. the date differs I assume in other states. my rent is due on the 4th each month.

@nicholas thank you. Hence why most people leave the 31 or don’t pay any rent and live out the deposit 🤷🏻‍♀️

You could take your landlord to small claims court. It costs about $50 to file
