Take a deep breath, turn off the caps lock, occasionally use the return / enter button as you rewrite this so we can better understand what you are trying to say.
When did he sign the lease?
What was the actual time period of the lease?
Has he moved out & returned the unit to you?
Have you complied with your local SD rules & regulations?
Have you rented this unit to someone else?

If you document damages that he caused, you can deduct that out of the security deposit. It sounds like you already have it re-rented, so you can't charge him for the time that you have a tenant in the apartment. --167.6.xxx.xx
