The move-out instructions and minimum charge list, or cleaning fees, in your rental agreement are a deterrent only. You cannot deduct from a security deposit except for costs you actually incur. This is why we have removed charges from the document here. In future versions we may add them back in as a deterrent, but heed our warning: you cannot deduct except for expenses that come with a receipt or vendor bill.
- Removed prices for all items. The security deposit law does not require up-front disclosure, only receipts or estimates at time of withholding.
- Added, "Removal of unauthorized satellite dish, $200"
