W9's for lease security deposit accounts

Posted by daniel on December 15, 2001 at 15:56:41:

Our new landlord sent out W9's to tenants in order to open segregated lease security deposit accounts. Is this a common practice?

We're reluctant to fill out the W9's because we have to give the landlord our social security numbers. We realize the bank needs the numbers to report the interest income, but can't that be done between us and the bank?

Replies appreciated.

(The apartments involved are all under rent stabilization.)
