Quick Tips to Avoid Losing Your Security Deposit!๐Ÿ’ธ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

If youโ€™re renting your home you most likely paid a security deposit when you signed your lease. The security deposit secures your performance under the lease โ€“ if you fail to perform your obligations under the lease the landlord may keep some or all of the security deposit. The landlord holds the deposit during the lease. Once youโ€™ve moved out of the rental property your landlord will inspect the homeย and, assuming you havenโ€™t damaged the property, should return your security deposit to you. Here are some items to take into consideration while renting in order to receive most, if not all of your deposit upon move-out. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ
