[Resolved]  Landlord Harassment — Landlord not returning security deposit

My landlord has not returned my security deposit even after 8 months of expiration of lease and evacuation of home just after that.
I have issued two reminders in written after that, requesting for deposit of money in my bank account but he has not done anything.
Please suggest what action can I take to get my hard earned money back. Thanks

Dear sir,

I am software engineer and staying in 3BHK at KANAKA NAGAR, bangalore. I took this 3BHK flat on rent in Aug 2006 with security deposit as 75000 Rs and vacating by June 09 after giving 1 month notice as per agreement. Now landlord is trying to extract as much as possible money from security deposit. Can you help me how to get security deposit by legal way?
There should be amendment in the law and such cases should be treated as case of 420 against these landlords and house owners who don keep their words.
Why don't you consult a lawyer. If you have made the rent in time - and you are sure you have not done anything wrong -then approach the Court with your clean hands. It is a long process- but then, one has to do it to end the "landlord" raj. You are not a refugee- to are a citizen of this country and you have a right against exploitation.

Or else if yu have a friend in the media- tell him to publize it.

Go to the landlord's house and if there are tenants there tell them that they better be careful. Don't sit idle - as you have rightly said- it is your hardearned money.
I have a similar complaint. My husband, who is disabled, and has cancer, and I, are Seniors, and we have been unsuccessful in getting back $2300 deposit from an unscrupulous landlord. It is said he is in Argentine, South America. Through a third party, this man is alledging he is not returning our deposit because he had to pay $1700 to do repairs in the duplex. This is a bold faced lie!. We have pictures and more than 6 witnesses who will verify the condition this unit was left. He is just corrupt and unfortunately, we do not have money to take him to court. What are our alternatives? We need our money.

Bottom Line, How do you get back money and who is ready, willing and totally committed to doing the right thing to represent you? I 'm angry, not to forget outraged because all I have been given is lip service from all the agencies who are supposedly there to help! We have been robbed and there is no one to advocate on our behalf. Only in America!!!

I'm working with a consumer affair magazine and we'd like to know how you resolved the issue. We often feature similar cases and would appreciate it if you could write to us at jayshree.[protected]
