The Georgia security deposit demand letter is a notice that can be used by a tenant whose previous landlord is withholding their initial security deposit after the lease has been terminated. According to Georgia State statutes, the landlord must return a tenant’s deposit within one (1) month after the end of the lease agreement. If the landlord believes that the tenant has displayed negligence or has abused the premises in some way, the landlord may retain a portion of the security deposit for repairs. However, the landlord must provide the tenant with a written statement of all damages and costs, as well as return the deposit minus any applicable costs. The tenant is required to leave a forwarding address with the landlord for the above-mentioned purpose. If the tenant does not provide an address, the landlord may keep the deposit once ninety (90) days have passed.
