Sorry if this is not best suited here, posted in /biz/ as well.

Background: Kid (A) moves in to apartment. $1,370/month rent and puts down $1,370/security deposit to start. Finds roommate (B) 2 weeks later. Adjusts lease now they split the $1,370 in half and each pay their portion. However new roommate (B) never pays any portion of the depsoit and is never asked too.

Flash forward 1 whole year. The newly found roommate (B) moves out. Remember the $1,370 deposit is still in (A's) name. The apartment is never assesed for damages for that year, remember this.

My friend (C) and I (D) now move in under the agreement we split the monthly rent like so; (A) pays half, (C) and (D) each pay a quarter equalling the other half. Securit deposit is NEVER discussed, remember this.

Flash forward 10 months. (A) moves out but agrees to continue paying the remainder of his rent for the last 3 months (this includes the month he moved out). However his father is requesting my friend (C) and I (D) each give him directly $450 for the security deposit because he finds it "unfair he should pay the whole deposit because his son will not be there for the remainder of the lease". His exact words by the way.

So heres whats fucked;

1) The apartment was never assessed for damages during the first year of stay between (A) and (B).

2) (B) was never asked to pay any of the security deposit and is basically getting away scott free with any damages he may have caused.

3) The security deposit was never once discussed with my friend (C) and I (D) prior to us moving in. His father simply said "Sorry it was just a miscommunication".

4) My friend has already stated he will not give him any money as it was never discussed with him prior and legally its all in (A's) name.

So my question, also sorry for the long post; Am I legally required to give him any money? And if so shouldnt it be 1/4th not a 3rd because of roommate (B)? Help please.

I'm no lawyer but I'm gunna say no you aren't responsible. But maybe ask a lawyer.

Unless there's something in writing that says you're responsible for the deposit just tell him to fuck off.

It would be neater for you to pay him, but not required.

A should talk to the landlord, either asking for his deposit back, with C & D replacing it with an equal amount.

Or everything waits until the end of the original lease, at which A collects his deposit and C&D sign a new lease with new deposit.

If there is enough damage to eat up the deposit, and it can be traced uniquely to B. C or D, A must then sue the culprit to replace what A lost to the landlord.
