So.... should I be worried about some kind of penalty for not giving proper notice? If they "forget" to give me back the security deposit, should I ask for it and remind them of the lease (which also says I need to give a 60-day notice)? If they have immediately found someone to move in right after I move out (and after whatever painting, etc. they may have to do), would this have any affect on my situation? Should I just forget about the security deposit and hope they don't bother me about the short notice?

I'd first ask the landlord whether there will be any problem with deposit return -- and if the landlord isn't willing to put "no problem" in writing, THEN I'd ask the other questions.

Good luck,
