What Is The Landlord Required To Do With The Security Deposit?

A landlord who owns more than ten (10) rental units, including units owned by their spouse and children, or who employ a management agent, regardless of the number of units owned, must give the tenant written notice of the location and number of the account in which the security deposit is held. As a substitute for having an escrow account, the landlord may post a $50,000 bond with the superior court clerk of the county in which the rental property is located.
