: My landlord is claiming , no record of a security deposit on file.
six years after i moved in , four years after he took over the bldg.
I to have no records and do not have my inital lease. any laws
pertaining to time limit? anything.

You could always ask your bank for the cancelled check. It depends on the
context. Is he now asking you to come up with a "new" deposit, is
he refusing to return it to you if you move out, or is he refusing
to pay the interest on the deposit? There's a fact sheet on security deposits
in the CTRC fact sheet section. In many cases he's required to put it in
a trust interest-bearing account. When a building is sold, the security deposits
are also transferred and he should go to the previous owner for the records
and the bank accounts. This is a common scam and I would tell him he's waived
any right to object or to claim a new deposit.
