Real estate agents are not lawyers and cannot answer legal questions. I would strongly suggest you consult an attorney. I am a landlord, however, and speaking strictly as a landlord, I would think you would be entitled to a refund of your security deposit and for any double rent, in other words, if the landlord collected from both you AND the new tenant at the same time. Your best course of action is to consult an attorney to be sure, also, to see if the owner is liable for any other expenses or penalties under your State's laws.
