Security Deposit Notice
I was in a 1 yr lease in a Condo, which expired recently and I moved to another apartment. My landlord never gave me the details (interest rate, bank name etc.) about my security deposit. The lease agreement did not mention anything regarding what he will be doing with the deposit money. I was unaware until recently about any such law in this regard. SO I never raised any question before.
Can I sue the landlord for not providing this information within 30 days of my depositing the money?
Am I required to give him a notice to provide me with the details where he kept my security deposit?
I appreciate your help.

Re: Security Deposit Notice
Your landlord is required to return your security deposit within 30 days along with interest set at a statutory rate. Failure to return the deposit would indeed give you a legal cause of action.
You should retain an attorney to protect your legal rights in this matter. Please contact me if you wish to discuss retaining my services.
