Landlord refuses to return Security Deposit

Posted by Roland on December 30, 1996 at 18:09:34:

My new roommate recently moved here from Chicago and sublet from a woman for about 6 months. The landlady is now refusing to return the Security Deposit of $600 for no apparent reason. (My friend opened the telephone bill when it arrived and paid her portion which angered the landlady as a violation of privacy.)

There was no written agreement. Does my friend have any recourse? Mind you, she cannot afford to pay the new security deposit before she gets the old one back--must act quickly!

Please advise. Many thanks.
