Please find below the demand letter, I sent the landord . I had no response from him. He ignores me. I sent this letter to these addresses: 615 Jefferson Avenue(the address I lived at issue); 613 Jefferson Avenue (landlord last address); Landlord's Wife place of work; Landlord's place of work and emails ****** See Below ******* Nicholas Kohnke and Jenny Carr Kohnke 613 Jefferson Avenue New Orleans, La 70115 Mr. and Mrs. Kohnke, I am writing with regard to the security deposit I made for my lease of apartment at 615 Jefferson Avenue, New Orleans, La, 70115. As you are aware, I vacated on October 1st, 2012 pursuant to and in accordance with lease and paid my rent in full through the end of my occupancy. No walk-in was conducted, however I requested a walk-through of the apartment with you before moving out, and you left me waiting without any response. I also cleaned the apartment before vacating, and left it in the same condition it was when I moved in. Unfortunately, I have tried to contact you without any sucess. As of today, I have not yet received the refund of my security deposit in the amount of $1.150,00 for the rental property and $300 for the pet deposit, a total deposit of $1.450,00. You, as the landlord, is required to return to me, as the tenant, within 30 days of my vacating the premises the following: i) my full security deposit (La. Rev. Stat. Ann. 9:3252) or ii) a written description and itemization of deductions and the balance of the deposit (La. Rev. Stat. Ann. 9:3251). I tried to contact you to inquiry about it but you never returned my calls or txt messages. Because you failed to send either, you have forfeited your right to withhold any portion of my security deposit and a court may give costs and attorneys fees to the winner in a lawsuit about a security deposit (La. Rev. Stat. Ann. 9:3251). Please send a certified check or money order for my security deposit to me at the address provided to you already. Since I am entitled to the return of my entire security deposit, please be advised that if I do not receive a full refund of $1.450,00 with five(5) days, I will consider the retention of the deposit to be in “bad faith” under the LA. Civil Code. If you do not refund my security deposit in five(5) days from receiving this demand letter, I will take legal action against you for willfully and wrongfully keeping my security deposit. I will have the right to claim the greater of actual damages or a $200 statutory penalty, court costs
