Disputes over security deposits tend to be the most common issue of dispute between a Landlord and Tenant.  Maryland law requires that particular procedures be followed with respect to a Maryland Landlord’s and/or Tenant’s rights and liabilities under Maryland’s Security Deposit Statute.  Accordingly, it is recommended that you contact the Firm if you have any questions regarding your rights or responsibilities pertaining to Maryland Security Deposit law.
