Rhode Island Security Deposit Demand Letter

Updated December 01, 2022

A Rhode Island security deposit demand letter is used to inform a landlord that they have failed to pay back a tenant’s security deposit within twenty (20) days from the lease termination date as required by law. In the event that the tenant has caused unreasonable damage to the dwelling beyond normal wear and tear, the landlord may deduct the value of these damages from the security deposit. Notice of any deductions must be delivered to the tenant, along with the balance of the deposit, within the twenty (20) day period from the date that the tenancy ended. If the tenant has not been paid back in time, they are entitled to recover double the full amount withheld plus attorney fees (if applicable).
