How Can I Get My Security Deposit Back?

Back

Landlords must return to a tenant any security deposit paid by a tenant or account for any amount withheld. You can complete a letter requesting return of your security deposit from your former landlord using the link below. You can also complete the necessary document to file a complaint in court against your landlord to ask for return of your security deposit.

Before completing the letter or complaint, click here for information about Ohio law related to security deposits.
