Refund The Rental Deposit
Good afternoon, please advise, Does my Land Lord have right to use my Deposit just because i gave the notice to vacate 19 days before month end? yes the Lease state that i should give the notice 30 days before, but i fail to do so, but I gave the notice 19 days before month end. Kind regards
If the cancellation clause in your lease agreement stipulates 30 days notice and you gave less, that can amount to a breach of contract. It is therefore within your landlord’s right to retain your deposit as payment for the rent balance for the remainder of the month. My advice is that you talk to your landlord nicely, and make him see your reason for wanting to move out.
