The landlord uses this form when the tenant has not left the rental unit in good condition, and deductions must be made from the security deposit. The form must be given to the tenant within 30 days of moving out and should itemize all charges against the deposit.
If you are a landlord and need to write a Tenant returning Security Deposit fewer Deductions form, follow these steps:
- Write down the date that the form is being written, as well as the names of both the landlord and tenant.
- Itemize all charges being deducted from the security deposit, including a description of the damages and the amount being charged for each.
- Include the total amount of deductions being made from the deposit.
- Sign and date the form, and give a copy to the tenant. Keep a copy for your records.
