Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.

That is a good question. It depends in whose name the lease is drafted in. If it is written under the name of the company, the company gets the money. If the lease is under the name of the tenant, then the tenant receives the funds, and then the company would go after the tenant for the funds if they wish to do so.

Sincerely,

Dimitry, Esq.
