Refunding Tenants (Payments)

TurboTenant does not currently offer the ability to refund your tenants through our platform. This is largely due to restrictions set in place by our payment processor, Stripe.

In order to issue a refund to your tenant, our team recommends refunding the tenant outside of the platform. While this requires a bit of patience, this is certainly a best practice, as it eliminates any possible confusion. It's best to wait until the payment has been fully processed and has been deposited into your bank account.

Security Deposit Refunds

For security deposit refunds, we strongly advise landlords to review their local landlord/tenant laws. Generally, security deposits must be returned via mail in the form of a check. When a tenant moves out, it is important to have the new address on hand.

Although this is not a substitute for seeking out legal advice, you can use this link to access TurboTenant's State Landlord/Tenant Laws page. Additionally, we have a few helpful blogs that may provide more information!
