Security Deposit by Huong on January 19, 2019 @00:21

I am returning a partial security deposit back to my previous tenant. If they cash the check with a final settlement security deposit refund, can they still sue me for the remainder?

YES. Just because you put a notation on the bottom of the check saying "final settlement", or similar words, does not mean the T cannot sue you. These days, anybody, can sue anyone, for any reason, at any time. You did not return the FULL security deposit, so they "could" sue you. HOWEVER, as long as you have definite PROOF for the amounts you deducted from the SD, it is HIGHLY UNLIKELY they will ever sue you.
