I had a couple (not legally married when they signed the lease) rent a house. Two years later they split up and the "wife" leaves." "Husband" remains in the house. To whom does the security deposit belong to? Both of them equally or both of them jointly?
To make this story really screwy, the "wife" moved into one of my other properties. I'm about to get a money judgment against her for non-payment of rent. I would like to levy against the security deposit she paid when she and "husband" rented the first property, but I don't know whom it belongs to, and what portion of it, if any, might be hers. It's possible that "husband" paid the entire deposit, but the lease does not say who paid it.
