    Answered . If there is no written lease, then you are a month-to-month tenant, and your friend can ask you to leave at the end of the month, when your half of the rent expires. If (s)he wants you to leave sooner than your 30 days, then you can request a partial refund of the rent money paid, but not used. You have no other recourse.
