Below is the landlord's response to this comment:
Hello and thank you for reading my response.
I clearly and I'm immediately was in touch with this tenant to explain my dilemma and to say I could return there deposit right away in any form they would like.
She wanted to wait even though I explained to her I had no date she would be able to take the room as I was dealing with personal issues that could take time.
Again she wanted to wait. When it just wasn't going to work out her deposit was returned that day. She was disappointed as my place is beautiful I understand and was very apologetic. I always made it crystal clear she could have her deposit it was her decision to wait
