It has been 9 days since they have moved out. By washington state law, I am given 14 days to provide them with an answer. They moved out on the 11th of September and wanted us to prorate this month. They did not pay the last month's rent and wanted us to take this out of their security deposit. I told them that the security deposit it not used for the last month's rent. They also have a pet deposit fee and balance owing that they did not pay. They also did not leave a forwarding address. I have now been informed that I do not have to prorate the last month. Is that true? We were able to find new tenants on the 16th of September.
Do I have to return a security deposit letter before I receive the keys or the last month's rent to the house?
