Landlords usually collect security deposit to protect against any damages done to rental premises. The said security deposit should then be returned by landlord within 30 days after the tenant moves out of the premises, it can be repaid in full, partial or zero amount depending on damages or repairs required to the premises during the tenant rental period. A tenant rental agreement must clearly state the security deposit agreement between landlord and tenant.
