Rent Refund


Okay here is my story. I was going to rent a house which initially I had the choice to go month to month or sign a six month lease. I decided to go with the lease and then found a house I wanted to buy instead on a foreclosure. Since this is a long process, I asked the lease to be changed to month to month instead of the six month lease. At first the landlord wanted to work with me but then advertised it on craigslist and found somebody else to rent it for the next month. To get out of my lease, she had my pay the rent for august and had somebody to rent it in September, but then they decided to rent it on August 16th instead. So the landlord sent me a rent refund check for a portion of the rent I paid but it is 200 hundred dollars short. This means she was paid an extra 200 bucks for August above what her rent she charges. I know it is only 200 bucks but it really pisses me off she is double dipping on my dime. What would you do?
