Refund of a security deposit

Posted by Kate on January 24, 2002 at 09:19:44:

Hello. Just trying to get some correct information. I live in Upstate NY - Depew (it's a suburb of Buffalo). I live in an upper and my landlords live in the lower. I signed a month - to - month lease 8 months ago. The only rule was to give them 30 days notice before I leave the apartment, which I have done in writing. I plan to leave the apartment in the exact (good) condition that it was in when I moved in. No damage, no dirt! I have always paid my rent on time (Yes, every month), so I expect to receive a full refund of my security deposit. I've researched the Tenant's rights web page on the NYS Atty General's page and it says that the landlord has to refund the security deposit w/in a "REASONABLE" amount of time. They just handed me a letter stating "FOR YOUR REFERENCE, IF ANY SECURITY DEPOSIT IS TO BE REFUNDED WE DO HAVE, BY NEW YORK STATE LAW, 6 MONTHS!!!! TO REFUND IT". Is this true???????????????????
