Hello JACUSTOMER,

Yes there is and that statute of limitations would be 3 years. Under South Carolina Code of Laws Section 15-3-530(3) actions to recover damages to real property must be commenced within three years.

I hope this answers your question.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
