    Default Small Court Claims Court in San Francisco, California

    My question involves a security deposit in the State of: South San Francisco, CA.

    I have followed all instructions at I have sent notifications through email, phone and a legal demand letter before making my claim. My only problem is that I do not have my ex landlord exact address. I do have her work address which is where I sent my demand letter to.

    My question is that if it is fine to put down her work address as her "address" in the Small Claim Forms? If not, I knew that she owns a couple property in Daly City, CA and/or San Francisco, CA. I believed she rented out her houses, so if I put down one of the house as her address and the current tenant does not notify her will that nullified the claim? Thank you for your expert and timely respond.


    I rented the house for $2400 a month with $2400 deposit and signed a 12 months lease on November 11, 2007.

    On October 17, 2008 I purchased the house I was renting, so I have assumed full responsibilities of the house.

    I asked her for my security deposit ($2400) and the pro-rated rate for the remaining days of October [($2400/31)]*14 days= $1083. I asked for $2400+$1083= $3483 back and she gave only $500 in November 2008, so the balance which she owes me is $2983.

    Do I have a case for her considering that the 12 months lease was not expired yet?
