Demand Letter

We send a demand letter to the landlord and offer a settlement.

We send a professional demand letter to your landlord and their property manager and offer a settlement. If they disregard or reject it, we'll initiate a formal complaint with their state or local regulator on your behalf as a first step to getting you some accountability. If that doesn't work, we may take legal action so you get your deposit back while helping prevent others from being wronged.
