If you want to make sure you get your deposit back, you need to restore the house to the condition it was in when you first moved in. You might need to hire a cleaning service a day before you move out, or even repaint the walls, depending on whether any damage has been made. Make sure you remove all of the furniture and leave nothing behind, otherwise the landlord has the right to charge you for a removal service.
When: Schedule for a cleaning service 1 to 2 days before you hand over the keys.
After you have handed over the keys and made sure the property has been restored to its original condition, ask your landlord to give you back the deposit. As long as the property is in its original condition, your landlord should not withhold any charges, and the deposit should be paid back in full.
