Customer Question

Re: Security Deposit Return
2 roommates moved into an apartment I had for rent. Now they broke up and the guy moved out. The girl wants to have a girlfriend move in with her.
What do I do as far as the original security deposit? The girl says it's 100% hers because she paid it. Assuming that the guy agrees by phone but wouldn't submit anything in writing, what should I do to protect myself?
