Re: Returning Security Deposit to Tenants split up by Stephen (Washington (WA)) on February 9, 2018 @14:14

I've talked to the tenants to see whether there is a method that works for both (all) of them. I've had a number of college students who, at the end of the lease, disperse to different parts of the state and/or country. Usually for those I offer to send each one half. If there is no agreement I usually write the check to both names with AND between them. I mail it to one person with a copy to the other so (s)he knows what is happening.
So, if they give you a mutually acceptable method (I have them email it for my records) then I do that. If not, they get a joint check and it's their problem to figure out how to cash and split the check.
