My question is about returning security deposit to tenant. I know that I have 21 days to return the money and I have to send it certified,what happens for some reason they dont receive the certified mail? Would I be at fault for that? I appreciate your help. Regards
Thanks for your question. Security deposit laws vary by state, so be sure to check what your state requires. To protect yourself from the letter potentially getting lost you can send the certified letter “return receipt” which means someone must sign for the letter and you’ll receive the signed postcard in the mail. You can do this by going to your local post office and telling them you wish to send the letter “certified, return receipt.” When you get the signed postcard back, keep it in a safe place.
Hope this helps!
