  • If the Lessor fails to give the required notice within the 15-day period, it forfeits its right to impose any further claims upon the security deposit. Unless the Lessee objects to the imposition of the Lessor’s claim or amount thereof within 15 days of receipt, the Lessor may then deduct the amount of its claim and shall remit the balance of the deposit to the Lessee within 30 days after the date of the notice to impose a claim for damages or further reimbursement of manure removal expenses. Other than the security deposit, and subject to the charges against same, payments under this Lease are non-refundable
