Security Deposit Receipt

Issuing a security deposit receipt may be a legal obligation of the landlord in some areas or not required at all in other jurisdictions.

Regardless of whether you are required by law to do so or not, keeping written proof of all your transactions or communications with your tenant, is highly recommended.

You may want to refer to our Security Deposit page for additional information and legal guidelines, before using the free receipt template provided here.

Please note the reference to depositing money in an interest-bearing escrow account in our guidelines and be sure to verify whether that is a legal requirement in your jurisdiction.

It's always advisable to consult with a real estate attorney in your area to ensure your legal forms are comprehensive and valid.

NOTE: Visit our main Real Estate page for links to many more free landlord forms and their guidelines.
