    The laws regarding security deposits are based on the location of the property. Please specify the country, and if the United States please specify the state. – mhoran_psprep Feb 26 '18 at 11:21
  • It's incredibly difficult to get your security deposit back. They always just say "oh this is damaged" and keep all or most of your money. No, no interest. – Fattie Feb 26 '18 at 20:29

Typically, no, security deposits do not earn interest. Where my rentals are, we have to pass the bond on to a government agency, who then send it back to the renter once we release it.

You don't say where you are, so I can't advise you whether to go to your local equivalent of the tenancy disputes tribunal or small claims court.
