Getting Your Security Deposit Back

22 Dec 2008 11:11 PM | Anonymous

So I just received an email from a potential group of guy skiers who are concerned about getting their security deposit deducted for unreasonable things.  Apparently last year in Breckenridge Colorado the landlord deducted money from the security deposit because they didn't wash their own sheets before they left.  The renters didn't know that they were supposed to wash their sheets.  They felt that they got unreasonable "burned" because they didn't know that was part of the deal.

The cleaning fee that we charge guests includes cleaning bathrooms, the kitchen, vacuming, floors, and all the linens which included bed sheets and towels. 

I'm sure many of you are wondering..."Have you ever withheld security deposit?"

Yes, but maybe only 3 times over the course of several years.  

We had a client who's family wanted to rent 2 houses at the same time.  They rented from me the previous year so I didn't think anything of it.  When the cleaning team arrived I think they went into shock.  Food on the floor, juice stains on the rug, stickers all over the house and bed comforters, and crayon marks on the coffee table.  The family's excuse was that they were running late to the airport.   Needless to say, we told them that there were never allowed back in our homes ever again.  That has only ever happened once thankfully.  Most people are really cool and responsible about taking care of our homes.  So having to deduct the security deposit is very very rare!

We are very reasonable ski condo owners.  Leave my house in the same nice condition in which you received and you WILL get all of your money back period. 

Hope this info helps you out in your quest for a place.

Happy Skiing!
