Inheritances in Pennsylvania are first and foremost controlled by the Will of the Testator (i.e. someone writing a Will) can disinherit (i.e. give nothing to) anyone they want, except their spouse.

3. When is February's payment due?
4. Do you have a written lease agreement and what does it say about evictions?
If you are still holding onto the keys, then your landlord might interpret that as you failing to relinquish possession. I suggest you give back the keys along with your written notice of new address. The landlord will then have 30 days to give you an explanation of what your security deposit was used for and to return the balance of the same to you.
