    do you have to give the landlord your forwarding address when you move?

    my landlord is a real pain in the neck. I want to move but can not afford to right now. If and when I move I was just curious as to whether I had to give him my forwarding address or not. I would rather not. thanks.

    Read your lease, legally you don't have to but, if the lease requires it, is best to do it. Most of the time this is cover on the MOVE-OUT PROCEDURES part of the lease, Good luck

    • If he is holding a security deposit he has 30 days after you leave to return it, so if you want it he'll need a forwarding address

    • Maybe you can give him your parents address and your parents can forward the security deposit to you. Or...just get a PO box from the post office. You don't HAVE to, but you should if you expect your deposit back.

    • Have to? No. But it won't be hard for him to get.

    • It might depend upon whether you are expecting a refund of your deposit. Legally, you aren't.

    • YES! You must give some kind of a forwarding address even if it is just a PO box. Even if you think they will keep your deposit there is still paperwork they are legally required to send you after you move out.
