: Don't pay your last month's rent. It's the best way to get clear of landlord's who are not only going to take all/part of your security by inventing "damage" done to the apartment. However, landlord should be paying you interest on your security. Anyone know how to handle getting your interest payments?

A question in response to your question: how can you prevent a landlord from inventing damages? Aren't landlords required to document damages and prove cost of damages? And as for return of deposit, the law states it should be returned in a "reasonable period." What is a reaosnable period? 30 days?
