Yes, you can cash those checks. However, once you actually rent the property again, you will need to refund the prorated portion of the amount. That is, if you rent it in 1 month, you will basically need to refund the amount that would otherwise be a double recovery. So basically the amount of time that it sits empty, you can charge against them, but if it's rented again, you will need to refund that amount of time that it is occupied by a different tenant.
Otherwise, they could sue you for that additional amount of time.
