>>Does anyone know the law concerning the rights to keep a security deposit if it has been returned unclaimed. After my tenants moved out I sent their refund by certified mail to their forwarding address. It came back to me after 15 days as unclaimed. Now they are calling me asking me where their refund is. Am I entitled to keep the remainder of the refund or do I have to try and send it again. I live in Florida and sent it within 15 days of their moving out.
If they are entitled resend it. I can't believe your trying to find grounds to keep it just because it came back unclaimed especially since they are now requesting it. I'm glad I do not do business with you.
