An Indiana security deposit demand letter is a letter delivered to a landlord who has failed to return a tenant’s security deposit upon termination of a lease agreement. A landlord has forty-five (45) days in the State of Indiana to refund this deposit starting from the date on which the tenant provided the landlord with a forwarding address. If no forwarding address is provided, the tenant may lose their deposit. The deposit must be returned to the tenant in full unless there are damages to the property or unpaid utility bills that the tenant is obligated to pay. Should the landlord fail to comply with the demand letter, the tenant is entitled to the entire security deposit (regardless of damages or outstanding bills) as well as reasonable attorney’s fees.
