Hello, it's been 15 days after I moved out but the owner is a new owner. I am supppised to send him a forwarding address correct?
Should that include the demand letter?
I must include proof of my security payment?
Which is the Florida statue I regarding this to mention it on the letter.
I also read on AVVO that the landlord has a 30 day window.. how does that work?
We've also been emailing. He knows how to contact me. I should send the letter certified not by email to his latest? Let me know...
It sounds like you know what information you need to send to the new landlord. Just put it in a regular letter and provide him the information on where to return your security deposit.
If you do not receive your return deposit, I suspect your local community has a procedure to pursue action aagainst the landlord.

Residential lease security deposits are generally governed by 83.49, Fla. Stat. If you both are still in contact, perhaps you and the landlord can work things out and avoid litigation. Good luck.
