lien – Deposit


My lease expired and am owed $3000 deposit, the owner is putting townhouse for sale. I believe they have 60 days to return the deposit, I’m concerned about the return of deposit if the property is sold, can I put any kind of lien on the property?

No a violation of the Security Deposit Act does not create a right to lien the property. But, it does come with some very harsh penalties for the Landlord.
If your landlord fails or refuses to return your security deposit or provide an accounting within the 60 period as required you should speak with our real estate attorneys ASAP. We can help.
Just call 303-688-0944 (24/7) or schedule online at At your appointment, we'll meet via phone or video (Zoom) we'll discuss your rights, remedies, the law, timing, how we can help, the process, costs, etc.
