What Can A Landlord Deduct from the Security Deposit?
The landlord can deduct damages and missed rent from the security deposit, subject to state laws. For example, the landlord forfeits the ability to make deductions from the security deposit in DC if they miss a narrow deadline to do so. In some states, if tenants don’t provide the landlord a forwarding address, the tenant may forfeit their deposit.
