When Must I Return A Deposit And When May I Keep A Deposit?

Utah law requires that a landlord return a tenant`s deposit within thirty days after termination of tenancy or within fifteen days following the landlord`s receipt of the tenant`s new address, whichever is later. If you choose to keep a tenant`s deposit, you must detail all the expenses that were used in order to process a refund. Landlords may keep a deposit to compensate for unpaid rent or if the lease describes deductions for cleaning/maintenance costs.
