I rent property through a property management company and the owners of home stated back in late March 2015 home will be put up for sale. My lease did not end until 09/12/15. Owners and myself agreed to a move out date and reimbursement of security deposit with home in great condition at inspection. Security deposit given in April after inspection. My moving expenses were to be reimbursed the next day after agreed move out date with house left in good condition. These were the only terms. I moved out of home by agreed date with property in good condition. Property management company is also company listing home for sale. The home was listed for sale the next business day after my move out. My moving expenses have not been reimbursed and now no response from phone calls, email/text
By law, your Property Manager (really your Landlord) has 30 days after you vacate to process your Security Deposit and send you an accounting, if you were not in breach of your Lease when you moved out. If that 30-day period has elapsed, then you've waited long enough. At that juncture, it's time to send a demand letter by certified mail to the Landlord and its Property Manager.
Hopefully a lawsuit will not be required, but if so you have a distinct advantage in asserting it now instead of waiting until the property is sold.
