How do you handle security deposits?
Just curious how much other people are charging with regards to security deposits. Do you ever need to keep them?
The past few guests I've had, I waived the security deposit simply because I didn't want to deal with the hassle of issuing a refund if everything was OK.
I know that's putting myself at risk of losing money. Luckily, as of yet, I haven't had to deal with any guest issues that would require me to keep it should I have collected it.
