The inventory is drawn up when a tenant arrives and again when they leave.
To get your deposit back, simply refer to the incoming inventory again to carry out the outgoing inventory and check that there is no new damage.
If everything is in order, if the tenant has paid for the various repairs for which they are liable, the owner must return the deposit in full within two months.
Once the two-month period has expired, interest is payable on the deposit, calculated at the legal rate of 0.65% (in 2010).
If any repair work will be required, the owner may decide to keep all or part of the deposit, providing that they send the tenant a copy of an invoice showing the amount being deducted.
Any disputes over unreturned deposits may be taken to court.
