I live in a 4 bedroom apartment with three roommates. Two of them are on the lease and myself and one other are technically subletting from the two primary lease holders. We think they are charging us more than our equal share in the rent. Do I have any legal grounds to demand an equal share in the rent?
You may want to determine, for a fact, that you are being charged more than your proportional share. If the rent is NOT equally divided, whether on the total square footage or the number of occupants/bedrooms, then you could lodge a complaint with the rent board in your County. However, you may open yourself to other problems if you choose to lodge a complaint.
