I am living in a house with two roommates. The parents of one of the roommates owns the house. Their daughters name is signed on the lease. Since my move-in date, her boyfriend has become a frequent overnight guest. I have addressed this with her numerous times but he is still there. I have tried emailing the parents but I am being told that they are illiterate and the daughter has been responding to my emails. When I gave my termination notice, I was asked to pay double what the other roommate was told. Help!
Not sure what you expect anyone to tell you about your situation in this context other than to have your lease and your termination notice reviewed by an attorney. There just aren't enough facts here to tell you anything else and besides, this Q&A forum isn't designed for specific advice but rather general questions.
IMPORTANT: No attorney-client relationship is formed through...
I agree with my colleague. If you have no lease, and you (properly?) terminated, why would they ask for 2 months rent? Asked? Why not just say "no.?" And what "other" roommate? Try reposit with more facts. gsg
Responses provided herein are merely commentary on the question posed. They are NOT intended as legal advice, nor to be relied upon by anyone, for any reason, nor to create an attorney-client relationship between you and I; and all askers should consult an attorney for advice regarding each individual matter, since each case is a bit different, and not all information is typically recited in the online question as posted. PLEASE do not contact me directly; I am NOT accepting new clients at this time, and only volunteer here on AVVO to "give back" after a long and rewarding career. Good luck!
