Hi, I am sorry to hear about this.
What is the notice period in the tenancy agreement?
Has he paid you in advance?
No problem. If he leaves before the end date, he is in breach of the contract.
I am here. It is not an instant service.
Yes, I am here. Please understand it is not an instant service. I will reply shortly.
Landlord can make a deduction for:
You can keep the deposit if there is a breach of the contract and you are left short of rent payment.
But If he paid you six months in advance, you could not keep the deposit if he gave you the correct notice.
In that case, you can keep the deposit because he has not paid rent and is breaking your tenancy agreement.
I agree. You are entitled to keep the deposit.
