Since you have managed to protect your rights as a tenant in the tenancy agreement, the lessor violates the conditions if he decides to withhold the deposit. It is best to tell your landlord that you will contact the Small Claims Tribunal (TSC) to assert the right to your surety. I want to know if I am able to ask my tenant for some form of compensation (our lease was over) and I still maintain the deposit. There is usually a series of “Access to Premises” clauses that allow owners to enter the premises for specified purposes. As a general rule, the purposes for which a landlord would enter the premises are for repair work or the organization of visits for future tenants. From what you mentioned, it appears that your tenant intends to break the one-month lease. When the contract was signed with her, was there a written agreement, what if she breaks the terms of the lease? It really depends on what is indicated, so you can decide what steps you can take if the lease is broken (z.B. The tenant must find a replacement tenant, the deposit is cancelled, take the tenant to small claims to recover the amount of rent lost, etc.). My tenant`s lease expires soon, but asks for a short-term extension (6 months). She asks for the return of half of her deposit (i.e.
half a month`s monthly rent). I have a request, I have a verbal agreement with the owner that I would confirm that I would take the place, but due to my stay in my current home, I would have to confirm to my landlord when I can move to the last date. The new landlord told me I had to make a $50 pre-caution and gave me a contract to sign the new rent. It is in the contract that once I have signed all the terms and conditions and I have agreed, the deposits will not be refunded if the rents go between the rental conditions. Thank you for your response. My lease is a 12-month lease and no, I didn`t stay for 12 months because circumstances have changed and I have to find a bigger unit. I did not voluntarily terminate the lease. In the early termination clause, it was stated that I had to stay at least 12 months. No compensation was mentioned. The owner is now demanding full compensation. In addition, the landlord told me that even if a new tenant is found, my deposit will still expire and he will ask the new tenant for a new deposit.
