Q.Security Deposit not Returned

Q. Security Deposit not Returned

I had taken 1 bhk fully furnished flat on Registered company lease for 11 months. I had paid Rs.1L as Security deposit through cheque along with 11 PDCs for monthly rent (Agreement for 11 months Only). After completion of 11 months I had told Landlord i will not renew rent agreement for further 11 months since I will be transferred after 3-4 months. So he agreed with me on exiting rent and I had given him 4month PDCs (Such stay was not under any formal deed). Now I had "given him 30 days notice for "Intent to Vacate" via email in which I had mentioned refund of security deposit clause and also told him to inspect the flat. Now I had given him the possession of flat, on the other hand he had only returned me Rs15k through neft from 3rd party and Rs.50k through 3rd party cheque which was deposited by landlord but it was found stopped after 2-3 days. Now the current position is he is making excuses asking me some time to give security deposit back. Now Almost 6 months has been passed but he is not returning my balance security depost and on the other hand he is now creating new issues e.g., AC/fridge/washing machine is not working. I have told him that I have given him possession of flat after inspection and now its alomost 6 months had been passed and therefore i am not liable for any such issues. So I request you to pls advice up on this matter with your prompt legal advice.

A. Send him a legal notice for recovery of security deposit. Even after that if he is not willing to pay then file a Summary suit in the local civil court against him to recover the amount. Summary suits are relatively faster and if all well then you can recover your money within 60-90 days.
