I was living in Glendale, CA in an apartment on a month-to-month basis. I am paid through to the end of this month (July) but a family emergency required that I immediately, and with only 48-hours notice, vacate the apartment. The apartment was left clean and empty today, July 14 and the landlord informed.
I do not expect any reimbursement but am curious to know if I am obligated for an additional 2 weeks rent (to round out the 30 day notice requirement) and should expect that to be deducted from the security deposit?
On that topic, how long after the property is vacated must any remaining security deposit be returned to the renter? And in my case, when does the clock start -- the day I gave notice the apt. was vacant, or 30 days afterward?
Help is appreciated
