Dear Sir / Madam,

If the terms and conditions of your Agreement for Leave and License (ALL) provides for a notice period either side, you can leave the place by giving the house owner the prescribed notice and the house owner is bound to return back the remaining Security Deposit net of recoveries, back to you on the day you handover the possession of the house back to the Owner. If the house owner dilly-dallies or refuses to refund back your deposit, a Police complaint is recommended. You can mail me a copy of the ALL for further guidance.
