My problem is a bit strange.
I am from Germany. In August, I went to Odense to work for an organization. I hired an apartment there and as per agreement, I paid the 3 months rent + security money (2 months rent). This means that the collective sum I paid was a 5 months rent. Out of that 2 months was a security deposit which i was suppose to get back. I started living and working in August 2016. However, by the end of the month, I realize myself not able to accommodate with the environment so I decided to go back to Germany. I immediately told the landlord about that and it was ok. Since the contract deadline was 3 months, I have paid already for Sept, Oct and Nov (as a summed up money), I only paid for Aug and went back home. Of course, I met with the landlord, showed him everything, drank a coffee with him and said him goodbye. The official rental period will end in the end of Nov 2016. However, I left the apartment in August. The landlord mentioned (in Aug) that everything is fine and he will return the deposit. I have the email communication as a proof. But till toady I havent got anything. Though he wrote me 2 times in Sept and Oct that he will transfer the money in next few days but that few days never seems to come to an end.
Now I am in Germany and working. The landlord is neither replying to my mails nor answering my calls. What is my best option to get the deposit back? Is there a way for someone like me who no longer lives in Denmark can get a legal help or initiate a legal process. Or what is the process to initiate such campaign.
Any experience, advice would be highly appreciated.
