What actual damages will you have incurred? You are taking the Security Deposit for November's rent. You hope to have it rented in 2-3 weeks. I see no damages.

Question: Does your rental agreement allow you to take the security deposit for rent? You stated he left the unit in immaculate condition.

Yes, he violated the terms of the contract. But, in this state, if you suffer no monetary damages, there is no foundation for litigation.

Yes, you can still report him, through the various sites, i.e., Landlord.com, etc. If you are a member of one of the credit bureaus, you can report him there for breach of contract.
