Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
Hello. My name is***** will be happy to answer your question.I am sorry to hear about this unfortunate situation.Please note, I cannot comment on your specific situation, as this services is only limited to general information and for any legal advice / legal service you should contact your local attorney.
Generally, the only way the landlord would be able to file a lawsuit in a similar situation, if the landlord claims that there is some type of damages to the rental property and since the security deposit will be used to cover unpaid rent, the landlord would have to file a lawsuit against the tenant if the claimed damages are not paid by the tenant.
I wish you the best of luck!
