Security deposit by Louise on July 3, 2018 @23:42

I have three girls living together. One is moving out, and the other two are staying. The two that are staying have found a new girl they want to move in. How do I handle giving the girl that is moving out her security deposit back since I cannot really "investigate" any damages b/c two of the girls are staying?
Thank you.

Don't do anything with the deposit until the apartment is vacant. Let them work it out.

They should all be fully responsible for the lease so I would not get involved with the security until the rental is returned.
I think you should also require that any replacement for one of the girls go through you application and screening process. Good luck!

I send the security deposit refund check (minus expenses) to the original group of tenants at the home address with "Forward" written on it. Maybe it's time to write a new lease. You need to check the identification and references for each person living in the house.
