This is not your role/job.The tenant who believes they are victimized can call law enforcement or sue their co-tenant in small claims court for "conversion" (the civil equivalent of theft).But unless you want to interject yourself into the co-tenant dispute by claiming that the tenant who is accused of theft has violated a lease term and is therefore subject to a 30 day notice to quit, you really don't have standing to do anything.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
