Most people dont think about their security deposit until they move out. But before you go, you can take steps that will help you get your deposit back on time and in full.

If you have a month-to-month tenancy, give your landlord enough notice to end your tenancy (30 days in most states). If you dont, you could end up owing extra rent, which the landlord can take out of your security deposit. Make a copy of your notice and send it by certified mail, return receipt requested. Youll need this evidence if you end up in small claims court.

If youre leaving before your lease ends, find another tenant to rent the unit. If you dont, and the landlord does not re-rent the property quickly, you may owe rent until the end of the lease termand your security deposit will quickly be used up.

If youre the only tenant leaving, negotiate with the others or the landlord for early return of your share of the deposit. Landlords have no legal duty to return the deposit until all cotenants leave, ...more

Of course, if the paper work mention's the DEPOSIT amount and RENT to be payed - HE HAS TO RETURN the money, best is to find out with previous TENANT and NEIGHBOUR'S about the landlords CREDIBILITY
