A Montana security deposit demand letter is sent by a tenant to a landlord who has not returned a security deposit following the expiration of a tenancy or surrender of a leased property. Landlords are required to provide the vacating tenant with a list detailing the deductions made for overdue rent and damages incurred by the tenant (if applicable). The list, along with the balance remaining after the deductions, must be sent to the tenant within thirty (30) days of them returning possession of the property to the landlord, or within thirty (30) days of the expiration of their tenancy, whichever happens first. If the landlord determines that no costs are to be deducted from the deposit, they will instead be required to refund the security deposit to the tenant within ten (10) days.
