Deposit Refund Information

About your security deposit refund

Shore Management will provide tenants with an Itemized Disposition of Security Deposit and refund (less any deductions) to tenants once ALL tenants have vacated the unit. A check will be made payable to ALL tenants on the Rental Agreement. We will write separate checks to individual tenants if we receive a signed, written authorization to do so. All tenants on the Rental Agreement will need to sign the authorization.

We do not refund the deposit or any portion of the deposit for roommate changes.

About the deductions
Shore Management, Inc. may deduct for certain items that need repair or cleaning.  Some of these items are as follows:

Cleaning
We are very fatuous about the cleanliness of our units.  Each property undergoes a rigorous deep cleansing prior to any tenant occupancy.  All appliances, windows, carpets and cabinets are thoroughly cleaned; therefore, Shore Management may deduct from your security deposit any cost associated for cleaning the unit to our expectations.  Shore Management cleaners charge on a per job basis and have a minimum charge of $135.00.  A deduction may also be made for the disposal of any items left in the unit.

Carpet Cleaning
Shore Management may deduct from your security deposit for the cleaning or replacement of carpet, if applicable.  In the event you clean the carpets yourself, and they require additional cleaning, you may be charged.  Call our office for current carpet cleaning rates.

Carpet Replacement
If the carpet in your unit needs replacement at the end of your tenancy, you may be charged a pro-rated amount of the cost that exceeds normal wear & tear. (See Normal Wear & Tear section below.)

Painting
Shore Management may deduct a prorated amount from your security deposit for painting that exceeds normal wear & tear. (See Normal Wear & Tear section below.)

Other Damages & Misc Items
Shore Management may also deduct for other damages to the unit. In addition, deductions may be made for misc. items such as keys not returned.

Normal Wear & Tear
Shore Management pro-rates items to account for the unused life of the item. Painting and carpet replacement are prorated based on a 5-year useful life. If you would like to know how old your carpet or paint is, please call our office at (858) 274-3500 x 102.

For example, if your carpets were new when you moved and after your tenancy they were in such poor condition that they needed to be replaced, you would be charged a percentage of the cost for the same or similar carpet material and labor to install.

If your tenancy was 1 year, you would be charged for 80% of the cost to replace.
If your tenancy was 2 years, you would be charged for 60% of the cost to replace.
If your tenancy was 3 years, you would be charged for 40% of the cost to replace.
If your tenancy was 4 years, you would be charged for 20% of the cost to replace.
If your tenancy was 5 years or longer, you would not be charged for the replacement.

The tenant will be furnished with copies of invoices for all relevant charges withheld form the tenant’s security deposit. If you have questions or disagree with the deductions made, please send an email to: admin@shoremanagement.com
