    You will be charged a holdover fee, if it was in your lease. That's where you start. Read your lease. Otherwise, 10 days is about 1/3 of a month. You could be charged 1/3 of your rent.

    Then it depends in what condition your unit was when you left.

    I hope you documented things, pictures, videos, a walkthroughs with your LL, etc...

    After certain deductions and charges are applied, the remainder (if any) is what you should get returned.

    Read this from Clark County, NV. It explains the law in your state.

    30 days is a minimum notice of intent to leave. There is no obligation to actually leave. If you remain you obviously must pay for the extra days.
