If the landlord does not return the tenant`s deposit after fifteen (15) days, the tenant may apply for an arbitrator`s order to refund the deposit.

A tenant can cancel their tenancy with a landlord with at least one month`s notice. This notification must be made in a manner consistent with section 84 of the Residential Buildings Act 2008-03.
