The Dominican way would be to do at least as much in damage as the security deposit. Too late now.I am just wondering if there is any legal recourse if your deposit is not returned. I know that they're not worth the paper that they're printed on, but we do have signed contracts.
I don't doubt what you say is probably true in many cases but I did get my two months rent deposit back about two days after I vacated the premises. I rented through a rental managing agent. Once the apartment was restored to it's original condition and I received a letter from edenorte my electric bill was paid in full I received a check (which did not bounce).Any smart renter, "Lives Out" his security deposit..........

If it's 3 months deposit, you don't pay rent the last 3 month, etc.
You will NEVER see your deposit.
ONLY the lawyer make money in legal battles here!
We will now hear from some DR Spin Doctors who will say that they always get their deposit back.
Ask them if they will pay you your deposit if your landlord doesn't?????
Buyer beware. You have to be sure you are dealing with an above board party. Did you have them check you out and inspect the apartment to make sure there was no perceived damages. If you did not then it's on you. If you had done this than there probably would be no surprises in regards to your deposit.I am just wondering if there is any legal recourse if your deposit is not returned.

This is a country where many RETAILERS and even Restaurants, especially in tourist areas or like on the beach cant even make Cambio.
This used to frustrate me beyond belief at first...
Point is , they cant even make change,, so expecting them to hold on to, and then RETURN a $$ Deposit, months or years later is kind of laughable if you really think about it. That money was spent long ago.
