Depending on how long you've lived there? Your relationship with your landlord and the condition of the apartment, will influence the way your depature will be handled. If everything is in your favor, then use the deposit as your last months rent and move out. Nothing should follow.
If your in bad terms with your landlord, then he/she may not do you any favors and demand certain things from you, for example: You must return the apartment in good repair and complete your lease by offering another tenant to take over your apartment. By putting an ad in the paper to find another tenant and continue to make rental payments until a new tenant could be found.
Any number of things can be requested (but not granted unless you agree) by the landlord to avoid penaties for braking your lease.
: I am moving out of my NYC studio apt. and moving out of state. I am breaking my lease and I gave the landlord a 30 day notice. My question is do I tell the landlord to use the security deposit to pay the last month or do I not pay the last month and am entitled to my deposit back?
