I am renting a house.In December I was verbally threatened by someone.I immediately went to the police and did a report.They kept my home on watch for 2 weeks.I informed my landlord with the situation and more than said I was afraid for my life and the safety of my kids.I spoke to him and his wife about breaking my lease because of the circumstance.He said he understood and to at least give him a notice.Once I found a place I wanted to rent I send him a message informing him of my decision.I have never broken a lease before,never been evicted, nor had any other rental history issues.The place I applied for called me back and said he told them I did not give a 30 day notice,did not fulfill my lease and he would not rent to me ever again.I then mailed him my 30day notice and applied somewhere else.He told them he would let me out of my lease and would not put anything on my credit report but he would not refund any of my security deposit which was $2300.Can he legally do this?
