tenant filed Bankruptcy, security deposit return? by Lee on November 18, 2018 @12:08

Tenant filed Chap 7 on last day of lease. Removed property items and left damage behind. Now tenant listed "Rent" instead of security deposit of $800 under their personal assets and listed it under exemption. From what Ive read I cannot withhold any of the security deposit now.

Do I have any recourse? Bankruptcy discharges debts not theft or damage does it? And the damages were discovered after they moved out and filed, so I would think this would be a new debt and not included even though they did the damage before they filed. Help!

Based on this, you may have to return some of the SD back to his/her estate. This is new to me and I've just started reading this. I figured that the SD is never returnable if there's damage.

Based on this you use the formula presented in (i) and (ii).
