My3cents.com - Security Deposit Question
INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA -- As a honest consumer from your state, I felt it was my responsibility to bring to your attention the following incident.
I just recently gave Star Management a security deposit of $875.00, plus other move in fees totaling $75. The next day, I changed my mind about the apartment, and asked for my deposit back. They refused to return any of it (I assumed application fee would not be returned) on the basis that they have a sign on the door saying that deposits are non-refundable. However, I did not sign a lease or any other agreement. My question is: is that legal, and do I have the right to my money?
As a resolution, I would like the following:
I would like to have my deposit refunded to me, without going to small claims court.
