Our lease is up, but we paid the last months rent... what to do?

My wife and I rent a house in Seattle and our 12-month lease ended in February. We're now month to month. The issue is, we paid the last months rent when we signed the lease... then also paid rent the last month of our lease. [more inside]

Landlord used city lease form for suburban rental, is he bound by RLTO?

We rented a house in Skokie, and the landlord used an office-supply-store-pre-printed lease form for the city. It included a copy of the Chicago RLTO as part of the form. Understanding that YANML, does this incorporate the requirements of the RLTO into the terms of the lease? If so, he'd be required to submit receipts meet deadlines for the return of the deposit. Or is he only bound by State Law (which for a single-family home, seems to require bupkus). He only returned half of our security deposit. Is it worth fighting for the other half ($600)? If I accept and deposit the $600 he sent, am I hurting my chances of getting the rest? [more inside]

What size security deposit should I require for a 1-month sublet?

I'm subletting my room in a Capitol Hill, Washington DC rowhouse for 1 month. I pay $1250 for rent, and I'm thinking about charging $1050 in rent for a subletter to make sure I get someone for July. My security deposit with the landlord is about $1000. The landlord knows I'm subletting it and is totally OK with it, as long as I'm responsible for any potential damage. So would it be unreasonable to require a $1000 security deposit for a 1-month sublet? How about $750? $500? [more inside]

How to handle deposit when you've been told that you have to move but have not been given a date to move?

Does my landlord - who told me I'd have to leave in the next few months - have to send me a letter asking me to vacate my apartment for me to avoid paying a penalty for giving them only 2 weeks notice? [more inside]

Deposit for old rental I don't live at.

I moved into a house with some friends in Los Angeles California, we all split the deposit (shared was $700 each), things got weird and I moved out with the person moving into my room agreeing to pay my share of the deposit. That was a year ago and promises of "in the fall" have now gone silent. What do I do now? [more inside]

How do I pick the right tenants to sublet (or swap for) my apartment, and how do I help them feel at home?

Have you done a short-term sublet (or housing swap)? If you were the renter: how did you evaluate applicants, and how did you help your subletter feel at home? If you were the subletter: what worked, and what do you wish the renter had done for you or told you? I'll be subletting my apartment in NYC but I'd love to hear from people in all areas & situations. [more inside]
