DID YOU cause the fire? or was it the landlords fault?

Ok i dont have to ask dont have renters insurance right?

its only $218 a year for $30,000 worth of coverage and $100,000 liability on the premisis....oh well

But you are entitled to all your possessions back...NO landlord can keep them

Security deposit is for damages right?

: I had a fire in my apartment. The fire department boarded up the apartment and the landlord installed new locks effectively locking me out.
: I found another place. The fire department judged the fire to be accidental. I had paid the rent for the full month in advance,
: and the fire happened on the 10 of the month. Do I have a right to a refund of the security deposit plus 2/3 of the rent for the month?
