Hi there, I am keen to inquire regarding vacating of room after the lease ends. I have paid rental till end of this month, meaning 31 July. And I have indicated to landlord that I will do the shifting after my work, but was however rejected as she claimed she will not be around. I was told that they will hold my deposit until the handover is done. Is the landlord allowed to do that? Furthermore with rental paid till the last day, is there a fixed timing that I have to move out as claimed by the LL? If contract stated that deposit will be returned end of the lease term, does it mean that I can get it back on the day of moving as it did not state that it will be held x no. of days before refund. TIA!
