Forum / State Landlord Tenant Law / Good Faith Deposit
Is there any law/regulation stating I cannot accept a NR good faith deposit from tenants on the house to secure the property? The deposit would then be applied to the security deposit at the time the lease is signed.

RE: Good Faith Deposit
A deposit is meant to be refunded. If they end up not renting then it can be kept, if they rent to you, it should be returned.
