Danish term or phrase: bebos op
"Opmærksomheden henledes på, at depositum ikke kan bebos op, idet dette skal henstå til udlejers disposition ved lejemålets kontraktmæssige ophør."

This is a sentence in a tenancy agreement regarding a deposit payment. Very unsure what is meant here - is it perhaps that the deposit cannot be used up (as rent) as it needs to be available for the landlord to use when the lease is concluded?
