Student Rental Deposits

The unwarranted retention of rental deposits after a lease has ended by some landlords led to the passage of HB 3202 in 2011, co-sponsored by Delegate Fleischauer. This bill balanced the rights of students to a fair procedure with the rights of landlords trying to maintain decent housing in our community. It established a process for the return and/or deduction of expenses from rental security deposits and included penalties for violations.
