Let’s be Fair! Who Keeps the Security Deposit Anyway?

Web Admin - Sunday, March 11, 2018

At Weichert, Realtors - Mark Thomas Properties Property Management, we strive to be fair to all parties! When you rent your Durham, NC home, you can expect your security deposit to be deposited into our trust/escrow account and handled in strict compliance with all applicable laws and North Carolina Real Estate Commission Regulations. We’ll document the condition of your new rental home by taking pictures before you move in. If you see anything that needs attention, we’ll make note of it so you won’t be held responsible when your lease is over. Cleanliness of the stove, refrigerator, and microwave matter! Please don’t neglect these appliances as you are moving out. We strive to keep all of the rental properties that we manage in excellent condition to ensure that we have happy tenants and happy property owners. You may wish to download the NC Real Estate Commission’s informational guide Questions and Answers on: Tenant Security Deposits. We prefer that our tenants and our owners fully understand how security deposits should be handled. Let’s be fair!
