I’ve been renting this house for 7 months and now one tenant is leaving and a new one is coming in. We are doing all the process from the beginning, also check of myself and the landlord asked us to provide with a guarantor.
What the landlord is asking me to do, and I don’t find anywhere in the contract is: he will give me my deposit back, and I have to pay it again.
Now that the new contract will start tomorrow, I still didn’t receive my deposit back and he’s asking me to pay the new one first and then he will release the old one.
The point is: I can’t and I don’t want to pay the deposit if I’m not receiving the previous one back. Then, I need to know exactly where is this written in the contract and if the landlord is allowed to do that.
