Security Deposit Receipt Template

Create a high quality document online now!

The security deposit receipt template is a legal document that is provided by a landlord when a security deposit is collected from a tenant on a rental property. The document will not only provide proof of payment by the tenant but will also show, with what banking institution the deposit is being held in escrow until the lease is terminated by either party.

After the receipt has been written, the landlord should copy the document and give the original to the tenant. Both parties should attach a copy of the receipt to their respective copy of the original lease for record-keeping.

Maximum ($) Security Deposit Amounts – Most States have a limit on how much the landlord may collect for the security deposit. Both the landlord and tenant should verify that the deposit does not breach the maximum amount in accordance with State law.
