Re: Return of Security Deposit
I am writing to request that you return my security deposit as required under Cal. Civ. Code
I vacated the premises at on vacate date. Pursuant to Cal. Civ. Code §1950.5, you were
required, by deadline date, to refund my security deposit and/or provide an itemized statement
listing any amounts you have withheld.
As of today, I have not received my security deposit or an itemized statement.
If you do not return my security deposit by demand date, I will proceed with a small claims
action to recover the entire amount of my deposit.
You may also be responsible for damages up to two (2) times the amount of the security
deposit for illegally withholding my security deposit. I retain the right to seek additional
damages up to the amount allowed by law in a small claims proceeding.
If you wish to discuss this matter, I can be reached at the address and telephone listed below.
