    I am on a bunch of attorney's email lists because I am a broker and a landlord. One of them put out a note saying it didn't apply to commercial tenants but that you could do it anyway unless the lease prohibited it. To be safe, I would encourage you to check with an attorney though. Also with the residential use of security deposits, it looked complicated. Not sure if that was the attorney's interpretation, but probably it was fleshed out more in the exec order.
