security deposit and last month's rent

Posted by Christine on August 04, 1999 at 14:19:02:

When the apartment was rented 2 years ago we gave 1 & 1/2 month security plus the last month's rent as the landlord did not want us to use our security as the last month's rent. Now we moved out but we paid the last month's rent up front hoping to get the last month's rent that we gave them 2 years ago back with any security. There was damage and they want to take our security (which I am contesting but anyway) They also want to take our last months rent because they say that they couldnt rent the house out for a month while they cleaned and fixed stuff. I can understand the security but is it legal for them to take our last months rent when we were not living there?
