New Tenant Refues to Pay Security Deposit
Tom and I assigned a lease in Gainesville, FL in 2003, and each paid half of the deposit. Then we added Kevin as a roommate, and Kevin doesn't pay any deposit. At the end of the lease, I don't want to renew, but Tom and Kevin signed a new lease with the landlord. The landlord refuses to give me my share of the deposit back because the room is not vacated. I asked Kevin to pay me, but he refused too. Could you tell me how to get my share of deposit back?
Thank you very much in advance.
