I gave my roommate 30 days notice that I'm moving out. I paid half of the deposit and half of the last month's rent. I am not on the lease but this was paid in the form of a check. Is there any way that I can get my money back?
A rental agreement is a contract outlining terms of tenancy for a certain period of time. Short-term rental agreements may renew automatically until cancelled.
Landlord-tenant law is governed mostly by state laws, and covers issues like security deposit limits and deadlines, evictions, and the right to withhold rent.
