Security deposit

Returning the security deposit

When will I get my security deposit back?

The security deposit will be returned within a reasonable time after the termination of the contract, when the apartment inspection has been completed and all other obligations, such as the handing over of keys, rent payments and care and maintenance responsibilities, have been fulfilled.

However, please note that the security deposit will not be refunded if your co-tenant or spouse continues as a tenant.

Can Avain refuse to refund the security deposit?

Yes, for example, if you have failed to pay your rent or if you have not taken adequate care for the apartment and it needs to be repaired after you. In such cases, Avain has the right to use the security deposit to cover the incurred expenses.
