How do damage deposits work?
A tenant can file a complaint with the district court if his or her damage deposit is not refunded or if they disagree with any charges made by the landlord against the deposit.

For damage deposits less than $3,000 you can also file a claim in small claims court.

For further assistance regarding landlord and tenant rights, contact an attorney or a legal aid society, or mediation center.
