The maximum amount of a security deposit is one-month's rent.   A guarantee of the security deposit by the Ministry of Social Services satisfies the requirement for payment of the security deposit up to the amount of the guarantee.

This page has the information for what both landlords and the tenants need to know what happens and what is needed when a tenancy ends.

Section 32(1) of The Residential Tenancies Act, 2006 excludes "Saturdays, Sundays and holidays" from the counting of business days. The Act does not define "holiday", so the definition in section 27 of The Interpretation Act, 1995 applies.

This section provides information for landlords about completing forms for claims on security deposits, and delivering a copy of the claim to the tenant.

Even if you don't use a condition of premises checklist, you can still do the move-out inspection and try to agree in writing to a settlement of claims against the security deposit.
