The lessor can deduct from the security deposit if the tenancy agreement ends and the tenant owes the landlord money for unpaid rent or damage to the premises. As a general rule, the owner cannot deduce an appropriate “wear” on the site (i.e. wear that results only from habitation in the premises). The owner can deduct for stains on carpets or countertops, large holes in the wall, and missing appliances and other things that are beyond reasonable wear. Before the lease expires, you do not have to respect the owner`s intention to renew the lease. The termination must take place some time before the expiry of the tenancy agreement, as required by law in your jurisdiction. This period is called “notice.” As a general rule, the termination period is one month for leases of one month or less and two or three months for leases longer than one month, but this varies by jurisdiction. You should consult the statutes of jurisdiction in which the property is located in order to know the necessary notice period for your lease. If you violate the term of the lease, you are responsible for correcting it. If you are the tenant, this may mean that you are paying money to solve any problems caused by you or your guests.
If you do not pay voluntarily to correct the infringement, you may be prosecuted for damages caused by the offence and/or possibly evicted by the owner. If the court thinks there is enough evidence that you are going to suffer the utmost harshness, it can make an order for your lease to terminate prematurely. If you cancel your lease prematurely due to serious difficulties, you must make this notification at least 14 days before your trip and stop paying rent. If you do not give a 14-day delay, you may have to pay an additional fee or a fee. If you have a regular lease (month-to-month), you can always inform your landlord 28 days in advance that you are leaving. This means that you will give them a message 28 days in advance. If your rent is $350 or less per week, most of the rent you can pay in advance is one month. But if your lease says your rent is paid each week, you can pay the most in advance, it`s 2 weeks.
You must prove that if your lease does not end prematurely, you will suffer serious difficulties. You can explain your situation in court. Please note that in some countries, an owner is not allowed to apply for a deposit. In other jurisdictions, an owner may apply for both a surety and other types of bonds (for example. B a deposit for damage to pets).
