Nova Scotia Security Deposit Claim

Last Modified 10/5/2018


The Nova Scotia Security Deposit Claim

This notice may only be used in the specific case when a landlord wishes to retain a portion or all of the security deposit and the tenant will not consent to this in writing. The landlord may wish to keep this deposit as compensation for unpaid rent or damages to the property. Whether one or both of these reasons apply, this claim must be filed within 10 days of terminating the lease.

If the security deposit does not cover the costs of what they have lost in rent or property value then they may file a different form to seek the balance from the tenant.

What To Do With The Notice

Once the claim has been completed it must be given to the Director of the Service Nova Scotia and Municipal Relations. The office of the Director will make sure the claim is considered and then they will respond to each party regarding the validity of the claim.

The Time To File

It is important that landlords file this form within 10 days of the lease agreement coming to an end or being terminated. This is part of following the lawful procedures and will ensure the landlord has the best chance to keep and acquire the amount of money they are owed.

The Details

This security deposit claim includes the instructions and what the tenant and the landlord need to do in order to resolve this issue. The details of this form include:

  • The address of the leased property,
  • The names and addresses of both the landlord and tenant,
  • A description of the deductions and the costs,
  • Deposit accounting,
  • Possible space for the tenant to agree to the claims.
