    What should I do to assure that I receive a return of my security deposit?

    Steps to take before or upon move-in:

    - Document in writing with the landlord any issues with your unit upon move-in. Some landlords have a check-in sheet.
    - Document in writing with the landlord if the carpet is new or used upon move-in. Upon or prior to move-in ask the landlord about the age of the carpet and the lifespan of the particular carpet and document this conversation in writing.
    - Document if the carpet was shampooed prior to move-in. See ORS 90.300 (7)(c)(ii)

    Hire us! Call (503) 238-1010 and make an appointment and bring all relevant documents for review. We charge for an our initial consultation and demand letter to your landlord see rates. Sometimes, landlords return deposits after an initial demand letter is sent. If your landlord fails to return your deposit in response to our demand letter, we will consider filing a lawsuit on your behalf. Under ORS 90.255 attorney�s fees and costs may be awarded to the winning party.

    Why do we meet with you and usually send a demand letter to your landlord prior to filing a lawsuit?

    Under ORS 90.255, there is a risk that a tenant be required to pay the landlord�s attorney fees if the tenant files a lawsuit and does not prevail. A demand letter allows the landlord to respond and inform us of any case weaknesses prior to filing a lawsuit. We encourage settlement in cases where there are factual disputes or other case weaknesses.

    How can an attorney help me if my landlord refuses to return my deposit, even after a demand letter?

    We can help you file a lawsuit. If the landlord fails to respond or give an adequate response to a an attorney�s demand for wrongfully withheld deposit, you, as a tenant, may be entitled to double any amount of the deposit wrongfully withheld or not accounted for. See ORS 90.300(16) Attorney fees may be available under ORS 90.255, provided the tenant wins.
