You are entitled to your deposit within 21 days of moving out minus rent loss to your landlord by not giving a 30-day notice to move out.
Your situation is complicated to ascertain based on the provided facts, but whether you have the right or not, you may not get anything and the best way to enforce it if you deserve it is to file a claim on small claims court... is rather easy, but I am not sure if $600 is worth your time and effort... also just because you get a judgement in your favor, it does not mean that it would be easy to collect...
My advice try sweet talk and psychology... if that does not work, move on and enjoy a good life knowing that you are a better person...
Best of luck!
