Our policy is to return the damage deposit within 7 days of checkout. This form will help to remind the guest about the time frame for returning the deposit but also to get his/her feed back. Thanks!
Why would you have an uncashed damage deposit. This is dangerous as if the renter did something they could always have stopped the cheque and then how would you get reimbursed for damage done. I feel that this is a bad practice.
