How to Get Your Rental Deposit Back

Posted on October 10th, 2012 by Discount Debbie

Nowadays there is a huge amount of people/families that rent instead of owning. There are definitely pros and cons to both. One of the potential cons of renting is losing your rental deposit. If you are moving into a new rental, you may be depending on that money. However if you want that deposit back, here are some tips from one landlord to you renters out there.

1. Read your lease back to back and don’t break the rules. This may sound like common sense, but you may miss something. In our lease we require our renters to do quite a lot when they move out or they lose some of their deposit. One of the rules is that all of the lightbulbs must be in working order. These are things you can easily forget and lose some money.

2. Don’t break your lease. Again, it may be common sense, but if you want to lose your deposit, break your lease. And depending on your lease you can expect to pay some legal fees as well as every month the house isn’t rented. Don’t break it!

3. Watch your pet. Make sure you check your lease for rules on having pets in your home. If it’s not allowed, a lot of landlords will have provisions to keep your lease if they catch a pet in your house. If you are allowed to have them, watch them. Don’t let them destroy anything!

4. Take pictures of the whole house! This is really important. If your landlord accuses you of damage that you know what there before then these photos can be used to prove you are right. Our new renters did this and I think it’s a very wise thing to do!

5. Do a walk-through WITH the landlord. This applies for when you move in and move out. There is less chance of arguing over the details if you just meet together. There is a lot of communication lost in translation over the phone or email. Just meet and person and talk about the condition of the home.

6. Have the house professionally cleaned. Yes, this will cost you money, but you are more likely to get back more of your deposit. We rented once and when we moved out we had a professional do it. Our landlord was so impressed that she gave us back the entire deposit. She didn’t even have to give us back $100 as outlined in the lease, but it was so clean she did. In essence we MADE money having it cleaned properly.

What are some things you’ve done to get your deposit back?
