Default Landlord doesn’t want to give me my deposit back

NY


Hello.
My NY landlord doesn’t want to give me my deposit back and now I’m living out of state, and I always paid him in cash without any receipt
I'm desperate and I don't know what to do.

I wish to inform you that you may give a notice to your landlord and demand amount due to you. In absence of bank statement and receipt from landlord your security deposit terms may be proved through your rental agreement. You may present copy of rent agreement in court to prove your argument that security amount was paid to landlord.

In this regard you should send a written request via certified mail to the landlord to return back the security deposit. If you did not receive a response from the landlord within a reasonable time you can sue him in the small claims court.

Sorry, but you'll have to travel back to NY to sue him. Or hire a lawyer in NY.
