Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question and respond.
Here you can charge rent against the security until it rents.If he is unwilling to pay for an ad you have right to leave it vacant until security ends and you can sue him for the balance of the lease.If he doesn't want to pay here don't rent it for a month and use up the security.You are within your rights here.
If he wants you to rerent and cut his liability he needs to pay for advertising.Otherwise you can use up the security towards the balance of the lease.You do not have an obligation here to advertise or pay such fees.
I agree that he should pay here but if he will not agree use up the security for lost rent.You have that right here.
Make sure you meet the Indiana deadline of 45 days for itemizing and returning the tenant’s deposit. The itemization should be in writing and state how the deposit has been applied toward back rent and costs of cleaning and damage repair, together with whatever is left of the deposit. For details on state security deposit rules, including any exemptions that may apply and interest requirements, see Indiana Security Deposit Limits and Deadlines.
You can claim the deposit here for breach of lease and lost rental money since he breached the lease.Thats the best you can do and send the itemized notice.The statute doesn't mention advertising so just take it as lost rent.
I appreciate the chance to help you today.Thanks again and the best here.
You are so welcome.This guy is really shooting himself in the foot.Without advertising it will not rer rent.But you just keep it for lost rent and rent it after it runs out.You may then sue him for balance of rent due i n small claims if you choose here.
If you can rate 5 stars when we are done it is sincerely ***** ***** here.Thanks.
