You shoudln't need to find another person to rent the room, just telling the landlord 1 month before you leave so he finds a new tenant should be enough, maybe 2 months but it shouldn't be your responsibility to find a new tenant.

Question on rental deposit arrangements in MXC
For shared apartment rentals with no contract (i.e. flexi arrangement), is it customary for the (rental) deposit to be paid to the landlord and for the deposit to be returned by the landlord?
Have you heard of an alternative arrangement where the deposit gets paid to the previous occupant of a room and the new tenant of the room needs to find another person to occupy the room to get back the deposit?
What's your your thoughts?
