Roommates won't pay their portion of charges
I resided in an apartment with 2 other roommates. One roommate had two pets but only paid one pet deposit and I have one pet and I did pay the pet deposit. All 3 of us equally split the security deposit. Now we are being charged for damages after moving out. I have agreed to pay my 1/3 of the original damages total minus my security deposit and pet deposit. They want me to pay 1/3 of the balance after all the deposits have deducted from the total bill even though one pet deposit was never paid by one of the roommates and the other roommate only contributed part of the security deposit.
How should the damages bill be split?
-Total damages divide by 3 and then minus deposits for each individual
-Total bill minus deposits and then divide by 3
