Is deposit due on vacating or end of Notice period
Atty Bennet asked me to resubmit.
I signed a Month to Month rental
requiring tenants and LL to give 60
days notice. The LL was out of town,
so I emailed one roommate that i
was leaving due to 2 other
roommates’ rudeness etc and that
they had a duty to mitigate by re-
renting my room in the house.
She asked if I was giving 30/60 day
notice – I said no –to place an ad on
She gave my email that I’m leaving
effective immediately to the
roommate designated as LL’s agent
for collection of rents etc.
I didn’t see him when I picked up the
stuff in my room a night or two later,
July 19 or 20. Didn’t need a walk-
through, I was there just under 2
months – no damage.
I demanded my security deposit and
they asked me to pay August rent
because they haven’t found a
roommate for my room.
When does the clock start ticking for
returning my deposit? 21 days after
I cleared my room, or does it start
after they re-rent ?
Surely it not after the 60 day notice
(I didn’t give). That would be Sept 18
if they don’t get a roommate before
Re: Is deposit due on vacating or end of Notice period
21 days after re-renting.You are responsible for rent until there is a new tenant.
I hope this helps.
