We do not accept partial payments for the security deposit.

We hope that all tenants receive 100% of their security deposit at the end of their tenancy. When we have received a 30-day written notice, we will provide you with a list of instructions so that you will have every opportunity of getting 100% of your security deposit returned when you leave.
Any damage above normal wear and tear and is not properly repaired, then the expense to repair will be deducted from the security deposit. Any damages assessed to your account will be documented for you in an itemized accounting along with any refunded monies.
