If you rent month-to-month, notify your landlord in writing at least 30 days before your move. If your old apartment lease is up, you don't have to give advance notice—but it's a nice courtesy. The landlord will need to find another renter.
Moving out of an apartment can be costly so your security deposit will help your budget. A security deposit may equate to one month's rent or more. As a rule, you should get it back within 30 days after you vacate.
A good relationship with your landlord works in your favor. It will help you get a timely return of your security deposit.
The landlord is not allowed to deduct for normal wear and tear, nor refuse to refund without a reason. Sometimes damage can occur when moving out. If you use a reputable mover, you won't have to worry. Your Atlas Agent, for example, carries insurance in the unlikely event your apartment is damaged in the moving process.
