A: A Tenants property damages deposit must be refunded within 7 days if no repairs required. If repairs are needed to rectify any damage, the deposit must be refunded within 14 days of restoration of the property, i.e. the landlord must action the repairs and refund the tenant within 14 days of repairs being finalised. The landlord or agent may not however take their own sweet time with finalising repairs – if a landlord or agents drags their heels with effecting repairs the Tribunal could rule that the deposit be refunded.
