split security deposit by Ted on October 26, 2021 @19:17

The couple that lives in our property broke up and are leaving end of the week. She wants the remainder of the security deposit to be split to both of them. I am not sure who is responsible for what damage. So I am thinking to push back on the request for that reason? Or I ask them if it is OK with both of them to divide 50/50 all damages? Can you share experiences if you had case like this in the past?

THEY moved into your property together. THEY gave you ONE deposit amount. It does not matter WHO caused any damage----THEY are BOTH responsible for any and all damages TOGETHER. IF there is anything left of their deposit after all damages have been deducted, then you can call her and you will need to find out where BOTH her and the ex want their money sent to. If she only gives you HER new address, only send out HER half of the deposit. If you cannot find her ex, you hold that half of the deposit for 1 year, and if the ex never calls you about the money, it's yours to keep.
