It’s hard to imagine where to even begin when moving out your home. Between the yes and no questions of “Do I reallllly need this?” and “I forgot I even had this”, one question you may ask is “How do I get my Security Deposit back?”.

It’s a significant and expensive question that has crossed the mind. After all, a pretty penny went towards the security deposit; why not try to get most of it back?

Part of the series of common maintenance items anyone can do, we’ve created a list of tasks that can help maximize returning your deposit.
