    what battle? The landlord is the one with the deposit. The guy leaving is the one who needs the landlord on their side. If they want to play games it's a super easy decision to make sure their damage deposit is used on repairs/issues.

    I find renters are magically too lenient on move in inspections. This becomes super important when a crappy renter wants to play games.

    Best part here is the OP can play nice and then hit em hard while their handing you over the keys at the move out inspection.
    Imagine how the colonizers must feel.
    Yeah, let that sink in.

    If the guy is leaving early I'd stick it to him on the move out inspection. It would be pretty easy to find $1600 or whatever your deposit is in charges so you can keep his entire deposit.

    I'd care less if the place was left in awesome condition and the place sells quickly.

    lulz at some of the responses like giving up or doing nothing. Yeah just roll over and let the guy do whatever. Grow a set of balls and stick it to him if the place isn't left to your satisfaction.
    If you're unreasonable with move-out inspection deductions, tenants can easily fight you on it. Depends how much added stress you want to induce and take on with this, OP.

    In the end it's best to work together but people are a bit nuts to think the landlord can't do anything. Finding lots of reasonable deductions isn't that hard.

    I like the idea of taking something mutually beneficial and trying to fuck the other guy over anyway.

    (Edit: This is sarcasm. I don't think it's a good idea. I think it's a stupid idea, the kind of idea that a stupid person would think of.)

    You 100% cannot keep the damage deposit. I mean you can try but if the tenant knows anything at all, they can come after you for it and easily win.

    The easiest thing here is for you to negotiate maybe an additional month's rent after they want to leave and hope to leave it at that. But end of the day, tenants have a ridiculous about of power.
    Tenant is also on monthly tenancy so they can't give less than 1 month notices. So officially, they can leave end of Apr but legal tenancy doesn't end until May 31st. Lease contract worth nothing. Market is decent, if OP is out of the landlord game, sell, keep damage deposit for May rent and move on.

    Officially tenant will owe differential for whatever income you missed within the contracted period. But who got time to go after that. At least this is pretty close to contract end date so it's not like you got a lot to lose anyway.

    Lawyers, and judges, love confrontational people like you.

    I hope gwills tenants find and screenshot his posts on here to make him look like the dingleberry he is in a future inevitable dispute hearing.

    And thank Allah for that!
    Neither scenario seems to have shreds of merit.

    I'd personally rather be a tenant than a landlord if I had to choose. But if I decide to get into Busters favourite asset class, there are ETF's for that.

    Yeah you got the deposit but you cant just keep it and then nickel and dime the tenants. If the tenants decide to take you to court they will always favor heavily on the tenants side so the place better have proof that it was immaculate before and then trashed after, i would also suspect the courts would want the proof from the LL on the move in and out. RE is still my favorite asset class

    and I did not have the only say in the matter (most people just want it done ASAP and don't care about quality).

    If anything we made a better decision because we had a consensus and were all on the same page.

    hey guys! thanks for the input. my house was listed for sale soon after my tenant said they wanted to move out. it was sold 10hrs after posting at $32.5k over our asking price. i guess i got lucky!

    the buyers, myself and my tenants also negotiated on a possession date that works for everyone. it all worked out in the end lol!

    Man, reading this thread does not inspire confidence. I have a tenant who gave me 6-7 days notice that they are leaving when their lease ends in only 3 more months. Noting that this is now December and not April, finding a renter right now is not that easy. I'm debating what I should do as they already scheduled the move-out elevator. I still have their damage deposit.

    Ideally would wish they just finished the lease, or at the very least give me more notice...

    Ummmm, sell!!

    But I don't understand your situation or description. You said "they are leaving when their lease ends in only 3 more months."

    Edit - I think I figured it out. Something awkward about that sentence.

    about all you can do is keep the damage deposit, give them a bill for the remaining term, don't expect them to pay it, and move on with your life.

    Sorry to clarify, they're going to move out end of this month, but their lease actually ends in 3 more months.

    I am afraid you are most likely right. Or maybe take this opportunity to learn the small claims process for my own knowledge.

    Can you? I mean, directly? I thought the damage deposit had to be applied against legitimate damage... Rental arrears or early termination is a different animal and the DD cannot be applied for that... I mean, sure, there could be a lot of extra "damage", but you can't just say "you left early, so I'm keeping your damage deposit", can you?
