How do security deposits work for renters?

What should I document at the start of the sublease?

Upon move-in, renters should review what the lister has documented and discuss any discrepancies.

At move-out, renters should document the state of the apartment just after they've removed all of their belongings.

When do I get my deposit back?

You'll receive an email to coordinate the return of your deposit roughly one week after the last day of your sublease. If your lister files any claims on your deposit, you'll be notified within a week of receiving this email.
