gave 30 days notice, and paid in full, landlord voided verbal

Posted by abreo on October 24, 1998 at 20:52:20:

We gave out landlord about 40 days notice on vacating our property. We were breaking our lease one month early. We assited him in getting new renters to move in immediately after we left. We original wrote him a letter stating we would vacate on August 31. Our lease was through the 29th day of each month. He called and asked if we would be out by the 28th of August as the new renters wanted to begin moving in on that weekend. he confirmed this with us on 5 separate occassions. We paid our rent in full and left on the 28th. 20 days after we left he sends us our security deposit less $120 dollars for rent on the 28 -31. He said that since we had it in writing that we were vacating on the 31st that it does not matter when the other people moved in nor what we verbally agreed on. and he would charge me for those days. Can he do that?
