Alright, thank you, ***** ***** you please tell me what your legal question is? Also, what State do they rent in, has their 30 days expired and have you followed the State landlord tenant law rules for notice to pay or quit?
Hello again and thank you for your question. I apologize for the delay in getting back to you, I was out of the office for a bit. This is really a landlord-tenant question and not a military law question since it doesn't appear that they are asserting any rights under the Servicemembers' Civil Relief Act. But, in any event, to answer your landlord-tenant question, as long as the tenants are still in the unit, they owe you rent. If they have not paid when they move out, then you can offset your damages for unpaid rent against their security deposit (assuming they didn't pay for last month's rent when they moved in.)
You do though need to make sure that you comply with the timeline and procedures for offset and refund of security deposits under CA law. In summary that is to mail, or personally give, the tenant any deposit they have coming to them along with an itemized notice of offset for damages, including late rent, no later than 21 days after they surrender the unit. You can see much more detail about your process and rules to follow by going to the following link: http://www.courts.ca.gov/1049.htm
