Florida Tenant Deposit Issue
I live in Florida and I was paying month to month. According to Florida Statutes, Section 83.52, I was required to give a 15 day written notice. However I gave a 13 day verbal notice and a 7 day written notice. It was my first time renting and I didn't know it had to be written.
Since I didn't give the required 15 days, how long does my landlord have to impose claim on my deposit?
The part I'm worried about is that I didn't send the leaving notice by certified mail. I left on March 31st and on April the 1st the landlord texted my exroommate that she needed to get into the place. My exroommate texted back that we no longer live there. Hopefully that would be sufficient to prove we weren't living there. Also, electricity was turned off on the 1st so that should help prove we weren't living there in case anything crazy happens.
I should mention that they received my letter of intent to move 8 days prior but I know that the day they receive the letter doesn't count.
