1+1 Mth deposit = 2 months deposit, nobody really calls it 1+1 month deposit, it's basically 2 months deposit which 1 mth comprises of the deposit and the other 1 mth the first mth advance rental.

Yes, in theory, if the lease is fulfilled. However, you can probably find plenty of posts where the landlord withheld all or part of the deposit for "repairs", some of which may have been patently absurd, like normal wear and tear.

Be sure you have a complete understanding of when and for what your deposit can be withheld. Or, fageggaboudit, and just factor it into the cost of your stay, and paint the walls neon green before you leave. 8)

Yes, after determining if there are any repairs and damages caused by the tenant. If there are no cost incurred then the full amount will be refunded.

Wrong actually..2+1 means 2 bedrooms and 1 maids room which is tucked behind the yard area.

A maid room ? That means, I actually has 3 rooms to sleep in for a 2+1 (assume I don't mind the smaller size)?

A maid room is often nothing more than a closet, just large enough to put down a palette. The first thing the maid needs to do each morning is roll up her palette so she has a place to stand and get dressed. If you like sleeping in the closet, then I dunno... maybe it will work for you. Of course, some homes do have larger rooms for their maids. I don't know how you tell except by looking.

It's also worth pointing out that the maid's room will be un-air conditioned as it will be off the kitchen near the washing area, etc. The maid's room in our place is actually quite large compared to the closet-type rooms I've seen, but I still wouldn't use it myself or for a guest room - no air-con and no windows to the outside. Makes good storage space for us though :)

Our landlord bitched and asked what was wrong with us when we insisted that aircon be added to the maid's room, a larger size room off the kitchen. He simply could not understand why we'd want to treat our maid as we treat ourselves. We did get the air con, though.

We don't have a maid, but we did ask the landlord to add hot water to the maid's bathroom (if you can really call it that!) and he refused. If we ever do get a maid (doubtful) we'll have to add the hot water out there ourselves, I guess.
