It has been nearly 50 days since moving out of my previous rental. I have been kindly asking for updates in regards to my security deposit while also reminding him what day the 45th day would be. I have yet to receive my security deposit. 21-45 days is a "reasonable" amount of time to return to the security deposit. I will wait until tomorrow or Thursday before taking action but if I do not receive my security deposit by then what is the next step?
Depending upon the amount of the security deposit you are seeking to recover, you may commence a case in Small Claims or Civil Court.
