Getting your security deposit back should not be a difficult challenge to accomplish.
A security deposit is money paid by the tenant to the landlord in the case of any damages made or for rent not paid. Many of the substantial problems or issues that arise when a tenant decides to leave the apartment or at the termination of a lease can be covered by the security deposit.
There are many cases when specific neglect or obvious at-fault situations come about by the because of the tenant or former resident acting like a child and damaging property. In that case legal action can be taken into consideration. Most of the time this doesn’t come as a surprise. Nice tenants are nice and not so nice tenants tend to make a noticeable reputation for themselves.
Regardless to what side of the fence you are on, the landlord or the tenant, be nice and act in a way that will cause for everyone to win in the end.
