One of my tenants abandoned the one of my rental properties without any notice. I called him and he said that he couldn't afford the place anymore, but will pay one more months rent. He is asking when I am able to return his security deposit. Do I have to return the deposit (excluding repairs and cleaning) to the tenant after he broke the lease even I get the condo rented out in the next month or so.

you can keep repairs / cleaning / damages.
damages include loss of rents till it is re-rented (or end of lease, what ever is first)
do send them a list of amounts being kept, in the time allowed by your state (Wisconsin is 28 days)

Thanks. If he didn't provide me a forwarding address within four days do I still have to provide him with the itemized list?
