Washington DC Renter and DC Landlord facing foreclosure questions-What happens to my Security Deposit?
Q. What happens to my security deposit?
A. If you live in a multi-family building and the security deposit was being handled by a management company,the management company is responsible for holding your security deposit, and must return it to you minus any deductions for unpaid rent or damages beyond normal wear and tear. If there is no management company,the new owner is not responsible for your security deposit.
Get legal advice. You may need to go to small claims court to sue your old landlord for yoru security deposit.
