We had given a notice 1 month in advance (oral) and it was agreed that one month's rent would be deducted from the deposit. During the moving out time the owner was not easy to approach and that made us anxious. Also, we had a slight misunderstanding regarding the deposit. He insisted we had given 1L, but we actually had given 1.5L. That was cleared out by showing him the challan and other proofs. But, then he said that he would require a few more days to gives us back our deposit since he had for some reason thought that it was 1L only. Being college girls and very new to this, we were very anxious that we might get duped. Also, the owner was dodging our calls most of the time... that didnt help. We got our deposit back 20 days later. But, all is well that ends well I guess. Other than this we had no trouble with the owner.
