    Dear XXX:

    I am writing to ask you to return my security deposit of $YY, as we have agreed. I could not have contacted you earlier because I have not been able to find your phone number until recently. Please transfer the fund to my bank account (Bank information ZZZ) or a check to me (Address information: WWW).

    後頭 銀行資料(Bank information) 或 住址 (Address information) 只要一個即可。

    Don't give away your bank account number.

    如果你們只有口頭約定,而對方又答應退還,你的訂金回收的機會還是很大的。當你打電話給他時,可先自我介紹是某某人的朋友,並提起去年租房的事。你可以順便問問他去年去哪度假,玩得好嗎?然後禮貌地敘述你至今尚未收到他答應退還的訂金支票,詢問他是否曾經寄出支票給你。若是你曾答應要打電話給他,你可以略為解釋為何至今才打這通電話(例如你遺失他的號碼,至今才從朋友處再得到、等等)。

    那是訂金或保證承租的金額, 如未履行承諾是不可退回的; 相對的, 如房東收了訂金卻無法出租給你, 他必須加倍返還.

    他之前說要給我但是他在度假(真的再度假)

    really? You really do have a good friend.

    I think you should consider it a donation to his vacation fund.

    If this happened in US, you would have NO chance to get it back! In US, if you break the lease or contract, you will forfeit your deposit. However, you might be able to fight the case in court, if you have the proof that you didn't actually rent it, and have the receipt for the deposit.
