Rent deposit, a break in that left both doors to the house easily accessible.

Posted on : 05-02-2012 | By : Legal Information | In : Landlord Laws, Legal Questions, Real Estate Law, Tenant Law



We were renting a property from our landlord in Antioch, ca. we have had several issues at this house including;
-squatters on both sides of us.
-fence that was never fixed.
-dishwasher that was never fixed.
-heater that went over a week without being fixed.
- a break in that left both doors to the house easily accessible.
We contacted the landlord as soon as the break in occurred and it took him over a week to come and fix the doors. At the time we felt very unsafe and decided to vacate the premises. He informed us that we would get our deposit back but after 21 day (the allowed time for the deposit to be returned) he called us and informed us that we would not get our deposit back due to us not giving a 30 day notice. Can he do this? I was looking up ca renters rights before we vacated the premises and it said if we felt unsafe in our environment that we had the right to leave without a 30 day notice.
