My question involves a security deposit in the State of: New York
I am the landlord, and discovered a crack in the toilet caused by some impact. 1 tenant is moving out while the 2nd tenant of the same unit is staying. They said that it was normal wear and tear. I plan on deducting 1/2 the cost of replacing the toilet from tenant #1's security deposit. I plan on billing tenant #2 for the remaining 1/2 of the bill. Tenant #1 said she will sue me. Tenant #2 said she will not pay for the bill. Or should I deduct 100% of the bill from tenant #1's security deposit to guarantee that the bill gets paid? Suggestions?
