Hi, I took one flat at Kandivali West but after four months I had to leave the house as my job location got changed, so I gave my landlord a month notice but my landlord kept on waiting me for the deposited amount for more than two months and finally he deposited half of the deposited amount (50k) only ,now he refused to give the remaining 50k for no reason. I have the agreement copy with me and all the concersations are documented in mail and in mobile text format.Now could you please help me to resolve the issue, I can file complaint against my landlord but there are few clauses in the agreement that might make my side bit weak (there was locking period of 9 month after that only either of the party could give one month notice to vacate), but in the agreement nothing is mentioned if I vacate early.If you want I can send the scan copy to you to help me to make my side strong. Thanks in advance and please reply ASAP :The fine points on agreements were: (5)During the time Licensee continue to occupy the said Flat, the said Flat, the Licensee shall deposit and keep deposited with the Licensors a sum of Rs. 1,00,000/-( Rupees One Lakh Only /-) without any interest in respect of the said flat.
