The security deposit was made by one of two tenants on the lease for an apartment in Los Angeles. They are now moving out and the payor wants the refund in his name only. 2nd tenant is fine with that - is this legal?

Get the request in writing just in case. Have them write a letter requesting this and then have them both sign it in your presence.

Your saying that 2 people rented a place and one of those two people paid the security deposit, meaning that the other tennant paid nothing toward the security deposit. Now they are moving out and the renter that paid the security deposit wants the landlord to give them the full check? What would be wrong with that? Why would that not be legal?

I would return the security check(s) in the same manner of which you received it. If you received one check from one tenant, return the security deposit to him. If each sent a check for part of the security deposit, issue checks to each one at the same ratio (if returning less than the full amount) as their payment.

If one tenant worked out an agreement with the other, that is between them and let them resolve that on their own.

I own income property and I keep the books absolutely squeaky clean.
