Landlord charging cleaning fee for bathroom that's still being used by other tenant?

So I'm moving out of a house due to issues with my landlord and I'm not getting my deposit back until February. I'm completely moved out now and there was no damage to my room but he's telling me he's taking money from the deposit as a cleaning fee for the bathroom. However, I shared the bathroom with another girl from the house who isn't moving out for another couple of weeks. She is cleaning the bathroom before she leaves so I don't understand why he's charging me a fee when there is someone still there and still on the lease. My landlord recently got fired from his job and I feel like he's doing a lot to try and take money from me.. can he charge me for this?? is this legal??

actually in most states you can not get your deposit back until everyone who lived in the unit with you has moved out and 30 days has elapsed, as far as taking the ll to small claims court you also have to wait till then, and then you and your roommate can eiter take him to court or divide the returned deposit...........................

you'll need to take him to small claims court unfortunately to get the money back........................... in some states, you can sue for treble damages for incorrect security deposits deductions...........................


whether your state allows this is another matter...........................

you for the life of me cannot be held for communal areas that other people use, no one knows who left it dirty
