    do you live in a subdivided flat by any chance? if so I would be careful what I would do with your landlord, some are dodgy bastards. Report him to the police.

    Interesting that the amount stolen is exactly equal to the deposit.
    What were the odds !

    I would report it to the police and see it out until the end of my contract, personally. Or get written consent to break the contract.

    Otherwise next time they accuse you (of breaking the contract) they'll be entirely correct.

    This. I find it weird that someone wouldn't care about their $7000 deposit if they're innocent. I certainly would care.

    I am not sure how to these kind of place (i am not local hk), but i think it would be that since it looks like the whole floor was divided into 4 rooms.

    Actually i care about it in the beginning, but a few days after what i worry more is about my stuffs every time when i going to work.

    So i rather get out of there asap than risk loosing stuffs inside my room instead.

    I didn't know we have some kind of consent to break the contract things here.

    So actually i was thinking about stay until end of my contract also, but since that i have been more worry about my current stuff more than i thought i would be.

    That is why i want to move out asap rather than risk losing some other stuff, just to prove my status.

    Well, according to your story, you are renting a flat and your landlord is accusing you of stealing from your neighbour, which shouldn't have anything to do with your landlord unless you are living in a sub divided flat which is probably illegal. Nevertheless, your landlord, according to you, is lying and has no proof. The police are not involved and you, being the accused, have not alerted the authorities. You are willing to give up $7,000 just because your landlord is accusing you.

    Why wouldn't you defend yourself? Why would you give up your money? Why hasn't the police been involved? Very shady from both sides
