When a Tennessee tenant can get their security deposit back

We are currently representing people in Tennessee that have had their apartment security deposits retained by their landlord. We believe some apartments have been keeping security deposits as a matter of routine and fraudulently accusing tenants of damaging the apartments. If you believe your landlord is keeping your security deposit unlawfully please call my office to discuss your rights.

If you are uncertain, it may help to know your basic rights under the Tennessee Landlord Tenant Act. Some key requirements under the law are as follows:

— The landlord must keep the security deposit in an account maintained only for that purpose.

— Within Ten (10) days of the lease termination the landlord shall inspect the premises and compile a damage list. Also the landlord must notify the tenant of their right to inspect the premises to ascertain the accuracy of the list.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact our Tennessee Law Office.

What Our Clients Say
★★★★★
When my mother was neglected in a nursing home I was referred to The Higgins Firm for help. They did a great job representing my family and obtained a significant settlement. Hopefully, this will keep someone else's parent from being mistreated in the future. Angie S.
★★★★★
I have a large collection practice and don't handle personal injury cases. Instead of simply declining a case, I referred it to The Higgins Firm. They handled everything. My client got a large recovery and I got a large co-counsel fee. The client and I were both very happy. Attorney Bo Melton
★★★★★
The best injury lawyers in Nashville. They represented my son in a car accident case and did an awesome job. James D.
