Bond Deposit Details

Frequently Asked Questions
Generally, flatmates split the bond deposit when they pay it at the start and get it back when they move out.

However, what if one flatmate moves out before the lease is up? The landlord is not required to return the bond deposit for the apartment until all tenants vacate.

One common solution is to have the new flatmate pay the departing flatmate their share of the bond deposit. If the departing flatmate caused some damage to the apartment, then the new flatmate should deduct the cost of that damage from the amount paid.
