An odd check
I reached out to the LL, first emailing and then following up with a text to "please see email sent." I stated the above and added that my security deposit was for 2 month's rent, please advise.
She promptly responded that a second check in the amount of $X (just $5 off-an error I believe) was to be sent.
CT state laws stipulates that tenant security deposits are to be held in escrow in a CT bank and earn interest (paltry to be sure). Should any deductions be made by the LL, they are to be outlined in writing to the tenant and all monies to be returned within 30 days of the tenant vacating the property.
I followed the lease to a T. Her reply makes me believe (outside the $5 suspected clerical error) that the full security deposit is going to be returned.
Bottom line for me is that I get my monies back. I have them earmarked to pay off the GC once he's done with finish work and to get a water treatment system installed.
Anyone have experience with this kind of a check? I suspect it came from a CC, if that is possible,
