If you have possession you have no unlawful detainer case. UD is a case for possession only. You can dismiss or covert the case to limited jurisdiction for money damages only. Regardless you need to amend to fix the pleadings. And because they answered you need to apply for leave of court. Absurd because you have possession!
So dismiss the ud and file a small claims action for damages (if you have any).See question

landlord can apply security deposit to rent for days you wre there unpaid. I would rather have him do that then hope he refunds rent afterwards.
technically though you have to give 30 days notice as well so you're not really entitled to leave early. not paying the full month could theoretically create liability.
practically speaking, though, the security deposit is probably going to be your only dispute after you move outSee question
