Failure to Return Security Deposit

Posted by Cynthia on May 31, 2000 at 14:27:27:

Our former landlord gave us the impression that he was not going to return out security deposit to us. We have moved out 30 days ago and I want to send him a letter with return receipt to let him know that a "reasonable amount of time" has past and we would like our deposit back. He has also moved and I have found his new address to send the letter to. I want to be accurate in my letter. Can anyone tell me what laws in NY or Federal Laws pertain to the return of security deposit and what he is legally allowed to deduct for? I know from reading up on some cases that he has to be specific in what he notes. I have printed the form from the Attorney General to collect unreturned security deposits but want to give him a chance to showing good faith before submitting.
