A tenant has just departed the unit you were leasing to them and now you’re taking all the necessary steps to end the landlord-tenant relationship. If you received a security deposit at the beginning of the tenancy, one of those steps will be disposing of that security deposit. You have two options: you can make deductions or return it in full.
Those who want to make deductions from the security deposit can use a Security Deposit Withholding Notice to communicate to the tenant your intention to withhold. Most jurisdictions require such notice to be issued before landlords are permitted to keep any portion of the security deposit. Even if you aren’t required to send it by law, giving this notice to former tenants can reduce the chance of legal disputes.
