My landlord informed me that he would be immigrating and would thus be putting the property on sale. Consequently I should start looking for a new place, which i did. I acted on his instructions and told him that I would be moving out the following month. On the last day I handed over the keys, fully paid up. He later phoned to demand another month’s rent with the cost of utilities even though he still holds my deposit with interest. He is threatening to list me at the credit bureau.
