: Which is more effective in recovering a security deposit--filing a claim with small claims court or with the Attorney General's office? My former landlord refuses to return my deposit, which is one and one-half month's rent ($775!). She has suffered no damages since this was a share and my roommate's boyfriend moved in to replace me. She agreed to this replacement. In addition, She claims I broke the 1 year lease, which she gave me an oral agreement I could break in 6 months if I was uncomfortable with the apt.
Small Claims might be quicker. I'm not sure, but I think all the AG will
do is write a letter, and you know who is our current AG.
