You are required to pay the rent until you no longer occupy the rental unit and you have returned your keys to the landlord or property manager.
In some states your rent would be prorated and you would only pay up to the date you actually move. There are a few states that require you to pay the full month rent, no matter what date you move.
You would need to check and see which state you are residing in, so you would be aware of what you would owe your current landlord.
Whatever you would do to the rental unit you are leaving, your landlord might find damage and repairs you missed in the rental unit.
Your landlord would deduct the damage and repairs from your deposit. If the deposit is sufficient and you have an amount remaining of your deposit, this remaining amount would be returned to you.
If the damage and repairs exceed your deposit, you would be expected to pay the balance of the damage and repair cost.
If it is determined that you owe rent and your deposit does not cover all the damage and repair items, your
current landlord would expect you to pay what is short.
If you fail to pay the financial shortfall, your current landlord is able to sue you in small claims for the remaining balance of the rent and damage and repairs.
I hope this has been of some benefit to you, good luck.
In my area it would highly unusual for any tenant to paint the rented unit, whether moving out or moving in.
In any case, you owe rent until the end of the agreed rental period. If you typically pay rent on the first of the month, then you would owe rent to the first of the next month after you gave notice. State laws differ somewhat on how much notice you must give and how rent is calculated for your final month. Whether or not you actually live there for the whole period is not usually the deciding factor. You are paying for the exclusive use, whether or not you use it. They cannot legally rent it to anyone else until you have vacated.
However, as mentioned by others, the landlord certainly expects you to pay the rent you agreed, or as provided by state laws, and they can invoice you for that rent, deduct it from any security deposit you left, or sue you if it remains unpaid. In theory, they could even give you "notice of intent to evict for nonpayment of rent" the day after it was due, allowing them to soil your record by suing for "eviction", even though you're already planning to leave.
Sure there are laws, but this is more common sense. Up until your contract is up you owe rent. If you don't pay that, or you have back rent you owe, then he can and will want his money. Why would he not? If the deposit doesn't covers all damages, cleaning, and rent then you still owe him money. Why would you not?
if you were given a 10 day notice you pay for those ten days, if you move out earlier the landlord probably still wants his ten days
Yes. Read your lease. If you possess the property for one day of the month you owe rent for the entire month. And if you didn't provide written notice to vacate they can charge you another months rent too, and that is atop any damages you leave behind. Expect to be sued.
sure there are laws, but this is more common sense… up until your contract is up you owe rent… if you don't pay that, or you have back rent you owe, then he can and shall want his money… well, why would he not? if the deposit doesn't covers all damages, cleaning, and rent then you still owe him money… well, why would you not?
You must also pay rent for Dec/16 You may also get charged for not repainting
rooms and having carpets cleaned professionally if the security deposit will not
You owe rent for December.
He can and will go after you for any rent that you owe, that you failed to pay, plus late fees, penalties, etc.
Of course the landlord can go after you, if you owe money
