SK Form 13 - Notice to Tenant of Claim for Security Deposit

Last Modified 10/5/2018

The Purpose Of The Saskatchewan Form 13 – Notice To Tenant Of Claim For Security Deposit

It is often the case if there has been a reason to evict a tenant that the landlord will be looking to reclaim money for unpaid rent or for damages to the property.

    This form can be used on two occasions:
  • If the tenant has been forcibly removed from the property.
  • If the tenancy agreement has come to its natural end.

In the event of either of these circumstances that the tenant still owes some money to the landlord then this form can be used to claim the security deposit.

Keep In Mind

    It is important to remember that the province of Saskatchewan requires landlords to file this claim in very specific situations. Reasons to claim for the security deposit can include the landlord requiring money for:
  • Nonpayment of rent,
  • Cleaning fees,
  • Various losses related to the property,
  • Any damages.

It cannot be used for any assistance of eviction and will only be filed after the tenant’s agreement has come to an end.

Timing Is Important

It is crucial that landlords file this claim within 7 business days of the tenant vacating the property. It should be sent directly to the tenant if a forwarding address has been provided.

If the claim has been sent within the timeframe and the tenant agrees to pay then the proceedings will be completely finalized. On the notice there is space for the tenant to refute the claim and if this occurs a hearing will be scheduled.

The court will then decide if the landlord’s claim is a fair representation of the money owed and a final decision will be made. The tenant will have 120 days to request a hearing if they dispute the claim made by the landlord.
