NJ Tenant breaking lease 3 months early

Hi, Tenant gave one month notice that they are moving out before the end of the lease (vacating 3 months early), to newly bought house. As the tenant is breaking the lease, when does the landlord has to return the security deposit (after deducting repair cost etc)? Is it at the end of the lease OR within thirty days of vacating the property OR any other rules apply? Thanks in advance.

If the tenant is breaking the lease without your permission, you can tell them "see you in court" if they want the deposit back. Otherwise, typically it's 21 days after vacating that the LL must return or issue an itemized list of repair costs. Just google "How must time Landlord must return rent in "state"" to get a quick idea.
