Kentucky Security Deposit Demand Letter

Updated April 07, 2022

A Kentucky security deposit demand letter is a letter sent by a tenant when a landlord fails to refund a security deposit at the end of a lease agreement. Tenants that vacate without paying their last month’s rent must claim the deposit within thirty (30) days of moving out. If the tenant owes no rent, the landlord will be required to forward a notice informing them of the deposit amount to be collected. The tenant will then have sixty (60) days to request the funds in the deposit. If the tenant takes no action to claim the deposit within the designated period, possession of the funds will be transferred to the landlord.

If the landlord continues to hold the security deposit after the tenant’s claim is made, the tenant should immediately send the demand letter to request the funds.
