    Post: Transfer of Security Deposit liability

    Posted by Ed Christopher on 2/07/06

    Tenant A enters into a lease contract with landlord.
    Landlord collect a security deposit from tenant A.
    Lease contract specifically prohibits subleasing.
    Tenant A abandons apartment without landlord's knowledge.
    Tenant B moves into apartment without landlord knowledge.
    Tenant B pays tenant A the amount of security deposit.
    Landlord later enters into lease agreement with tenant B,
    but makes no mention of security deposit.
    Is landlord liable to Tenant A under security deposit law?
    Is landlord liable to tenant B under security deposit law?
    Under what theory of law would the landlord become liable
    to tenant B?
