Landlord's Claims Against Security  Deposits

The Florida Statutes govern the handling of security deposits by landlords and provide for specific procedures to follow in asserting a claim against a tenant's security deposit.  Our Tampa eviction attorneys, Tampa real estate attorneys, Tampa business attorneys and Tampa contract lawyers are knowledgeable about the applicable statutes that provide strict rules governing security deposits for residential landlords.  


Within thirty (30) days after the tenant vacates the premises, the landlord must send a letter prescribed by the Florida Statutes notifying the tenant of the landlord's claim being made against the security deposit previously posted by the tenant.  The notice must be sent by certified mail.

Thereafter, the tenant has fifteen (15) days to object in writing to the landlord's claim.  If the tenant fails to timely object in writing, then the landlord is authorized to deduct its claim from the security deposit.

If there is no claim against the security deposit, our Tampa eviction attorneys, Tampa real estate attorneys, Tampa real estate attorneys, Tampa contract lawyers and Tampa business attorneys counsel landlords that they are obligated to return the security deposit to the tenant within fifteen (15) days of the tenant properly vacating the premises.
