    Default Security Deposit Given, but No Lease Signed - Can I Get It Back

    My question involves a security deposit in the State of: Iowa

    I put a deposit down on a place 1 week ago, but due to extenuating circumstances, I am no longer moving. Can I get the deposit back if no lease was signed? I realized that I unfortunately erred in not asking for a receipt.

    Only if the deposit taker is a kind, honest human being. If not, the amount of legal hassle, time and effort that you will have to go through, assuming the deposit taker even acknowledges you gave him money, is strongly not in your favor.
