What Your Landlord Can Deduct From Your Deposit

Before moving into an apartment, you have to put down a deposit. This deposit covers damage after you leave. Some people wonder how much is acceptable to take from the deposit and for what reason can they take from your deposit.

The laws vary from state to state, however your landlord is only allowed to deduct for damage, not regular wear and tear. Think of damage as something that happens from a single incident such as a burn in the carpet, or hole in the wall.
