What if money is owed

Property owner is selling rental apartments in VA.  All leases and deposits are prepared and ready to  handed over at closing.  However the current owner has stated he is owed money by a few of the tenants and wants to keep the deposits of those few and not transfer them to the new owner in order to settle money owed to him.....can this be done?

Talk to your real estate agent. In my case, the amount of outstanding debt (security deposits) was deducted from the sale price. Therefore, I was responsible for refunding the deposit upon move out.
