Deposit Money

Posted on November 25, 2008


Now the 30-day limit begins when you move out.  Was the letter dated on the 20th or was the date on the actual “Certified Mail” stub dated the 20th of the month.  If the letter was dated the 20th of the month and it was not given to the post office until after the 30 days was up, then the landlord is required to give you back all of your security deposit money.

If the mail was mailed before the thirty days was up then it would probably be up to a judge to decide because of the third party which is it US Post Office.  In this case you will need to talk to an attorney.  You will need to find out who is at fault, the landlord or the Post Office.

 The Landlord has to have the letter in the mail before the end of the 30th day after you move out.


If you have any more questions feel free to contact me again.  I hope this will help you.  Good luck
