Our renters gave notice the 30th of October to vacate the property the 31st of December, with agreement that they stay out their deposit in December and do not need to pay rent. They let us know Monday the 27th of November that they will be moving out the 30th of November and not the 31st of December as per notice letter to us. In this case do we now still need to pay back their Deposit, seeing as we did not advertise for new renters for December, and they were going to be staying out their deposit for end December. Please advise if we need to pay their deposit back?
