Hello everyone. My question is about getting my security deposit back ($2400) from my landlord. I had rented his house in boulder , CO for a year. The lease I signed with the landlord stated that the security deposit would be returned to me 60 days after the termination of the lease.The 60 days would end on Tuesday August 12th 2014.I have so far not received or heard anything from the landlord. I had emailed him my mailing address. I wanted to know what my options are ? Also from the research I have done I wanted to know if I understand this correctly. If  by August 12th 2014 I do not receive anything from my landlord  regarding my security deposit (So far I have not even received an itemized list of deductions ). I could send him a letter telling him that he has exactly 5 days to mail me my security deposit at a specified address in full amount and that he has lost the right to withhold any money from my deposit (on the condition if I do not get the list of itemized deductions). I could also further add that in-case I do not receive the amount within the specified period I could sue him for 3 times the amount in small claims court. I would appreciate it if some one could point me in the right direction. Am I getting this correct ? Do I need to email/call/text him earlier for anything before August 12th ? Is there a sample template letter that I could use ? Any advice regarding this issue would be highly appreciated.
