When multiple tenants are listed on a lease, there can be confusion about who is entitled to the security deposit. Paragraph 10C of the Residential Lease (TXR 2001) states that any refund of the security deposit will be made payable to all tenants named in the lease. Tenants should also remember that they must give their landlord at least 30 days written notice of surrender before the landlord is obligated to refund the security deposit.
