If you do not receive notice of your security deposit as a tenant, you can provide your landlord with written notice requesting that your security deposit be used to pay rent. The notice must be sent via regular and certified mail.
Upon receipt of notice from the tenant a landlord has 30 days to pay the interest or give the annual notice.
*Note: The name and address of the bank may be located in the body of the lease, this is considered sufficient notice. As a tenant, you should call the bank to verify that the deposit has been made, if there has been no deposit you may proceed with sending a notice to your landlord requesting that the money be applied to rent.
