In Reply to: Landlord Won't Return Deposit! posted by Fred Robinson on June 14, 1999 at 11:16:41:
: My new roommate recently moved here from Dallas and sublet from a woman for about 6 months. The landlady is now refusing to
: return the Security Deposit of $1200 for no apparent reason. (My friend opened the telephone bill when it arrived and paid his portion which angered the landlady as a violation of privacy.)
The landlord can only withhold deposits for provable damage. Ask for verification in writing and if you get no response, get hold of the Attorney General's office or go to small claims court.
