An Arizona security deposit demand letter is a letter sent by a tenant to a landlord when the landlord fails to return the security deposit paid at the beginning of the lease term. Landlords often ask the tenant to make a security deposit of one and a half month’s rent (maximum), which is returned upon termination or expiration of the lease. The landlord is given fourteen (14) days to return the tenant’s deposit or, if there are damages or unpaid rent, deliver to the tenant an itemized statement of deductions. Upon the landlord’s failure to comply with the demand letter, the tenant has the right to file a lawsuit in Small Claims Court to recover twice the amount of the wrongfully withheld deposit.
