The landlord should return your deposit as a matter of law.
If the landlord does not do so, you will only get your deposit back by a lawsuit.
That requires that you take your landlord to court. If the judge rules in your favor, he or she will order the landlord to return the deposit.
The process of getting your security deposit back through taking your landlord to court requires that you follow proper procedures.
We can help you with those procedures.
Before exercising your rights, you should get our experienced assistance.
If you need help getting back your deposit, please call us at: (773) 478-1133
