Tenants in Collections


When the tenant moves out of the house and the owner gains possession, the owner/landlord has 30 days to send a Deposit demand letter from the day of move out, to the last known address.


  • Shows on tenants’ credit for 7 years warning other landlords.
  • Possibility of collecting some of the rent. The collection company takes a share of recovered funds.
  • Requires the tenants’ application, first page of lease, page where Security deposit is noted, page where lease holder(s) and landlord signs, pet agreement if deposit was paid (if applicable as this is deducted from monies owed), and tax id numbers for the adult tenants.
  • Once the file is sent to collection, we have no further correspondence with the debt collector unless they remit funds due the owner.
