Refund of portion of "last month"

Posted by Hugh on April 08, 2000 at 21:08:00:

If I have notified my landlord in a timely fashion that I am moving out but move part way through the prepaid last month (on a specified date) am I entitled to a refund of the remainder of that month's rent?

I rent an unregulated home in suburban Massachusetts "month to month", and have been there for 2 years. I need to relocate and told my landlord about 50 days before the move day. I had already paid thru to 1 week short of my move day with regular monthly payments, and last month was prepaid when I moved in. I asked for a refund of the remainder of the last month plus security, but was told that "month to month" is literal and the landlord is entiltled to the full month rent even though I would occupy only 7 days. The security is not an issue, except that I'm afraid that if I gripe he'll deduct from that as well. Any advice on how to proceed?
