A tenant gave notice to break their lease 3 weeks after moving in (they have to return to their overseas home for urgent "personal" reasons). I have 2 questions relating to their deposit:

1) Can I use their deposit to cover any void while a new tenant is found? I assume so, just the outgoing tenant expects their full deposit to be returned immediately...

2) A possible tenant has been found, but they have offered 50 per month less. Can I claim anything from the original tenant's deposit to cover this shortfall (like 50 x 6 months tenancy = 300)?

Thanks,
Scott.
