The park owner is required to return your security deposit if you do not owe any rent and you did not cause any damage. It is important that you do the following things:
- Give a fowarding address
- Object within 15 days
Give a forwarding address
You must give the park owner a forwarding address or the park owner does not have to give you notice of any damages.The park owner can subtract money from your security deposit for unpaid rent or actual damages.
Subtractions from a security deposit can only be made if the park owner gives the tenant a detailed list of the damages and the estimated cost for the repair of each item. This list must be given to the tenant within 15 days after termination or expiration of the lease. If the park owner fails to provide the notice of damages within 15 days, the full deposit must be returned to you.
Object within 15 days
If you disagree with the damages, you must object within 15 days after you receive the notification. If you do not object, your silence will be considered an agreement that you owe the damages claimed by the park owner.
Interest on the deposit must be paid if the park contains 25 or more mobile homes. If the park owner willfully fails or refuses to pay the interest required, the tenant may recover an amount equal to the deposit along with attorney fees.
