This seemed the likeliest of places for real responses. Living in a house with five other roommates. The end of the lease is coming up at the end of July and three are leaving, and we're getting three new ones. Since half of the original leaseholders are still staying here, the management company doesn't require an inspection at the end of the lease (I've never rented before but this seems common at least around here.) So here's the problem. We're just estimating utilities for the rest of the month for the three that are leaving, and next months rent will be paid by the new roommates, so that's all figured out. The question I can't answer is how do we transfer the deposit? Our company requires two months rent as a deposit (which is ~$700 they have from each of us) so it's a considerable amount of change that I'm sure the three that are leaving will want back. We could just have the three new roommates pay the three old ones in full, but then the three old ones won't have to help pay any damages they made this last year. Anyone been in the situation before, and what do you think is a good plan for this?
