A security deposit can be a vital part of the rental process, as it provides an important level of protection for the landlord. A security deposit is an advanced sum of money that a landlord will hold to secure any cost of repairs or damages caused during the tenancy. In some cases, security deposits can be used for the failure to pay rent. Security deposits are handled differently in each state, and each state has its own set of laws and restrictions regarding how they may or may not be used. It is important for landlords to read and get familiar with their state landlord tenant laws on security deposits. The landlord must handle the security deposit carefully in order to maintain it during their tenant’s rental period, and to use it to repair any damages and recoup any losses incurred as a result of the tenancy.
