Hi Mr. Ram,

Breaking the lease depends on your TA terms. Not sure, how your TA terms,

Usually for 18 months contract, there'll be Diplomatic Clause. Diplomatic Clause, you can execute only if you are going out from Singapore. More details you can find at below URL

Hi Mr. Ram,

Generally, 2 months notice, means continue to pay for the next 2 months.
Deposit cannot be used as rent retention, not sure whether this was captured in your TA.

Deposit can only retain for payment of damages, cleaning promised such as polishing of marble floor, aircon servicing, varnish for wooden floor, carpet dry cleaning, curtain dry cleaning etc.

It is difficult to provide an exhaustive list here and without understanding the TA signed.

Hope the above answer to your main concerns, but if there are more queries, please feel free to contact me at 90110636, or email: ling.ck7@gmail.com if more information is needed.
I'll be glad to assist.

Best regards
