My boyfriend and I are breaking up. We are both on the lease until September. He insists that I pay him my half of the remaining lease, in one lump payment within two weeks. I insist that I can pay him my half, monthly. Is he allowed to do this? What happens if I can't pay?
Make a different offer: He stops paying his part of the lease going forward and you make the full payment to the end of the lease. This assumes he is moving out. If you are moving, why would you pay for something you aren't getting. Either way, if the rent is no paid, credit reports will be wrecked for BOTH of you.
