What A Mess

May 19th, 2010 at 02:40 pm

So yesterday I get home after running some errands. My roommate's parents are there. They want to talk. LOOOOONG story short, they can't find replacements for me and my sister so we have to continue to pay rent until November. We are beyond pissed. There was lots of yelling involved. The worst part for my roommate is that he just lost 2 friends. And he doesn't have many to begin with. My sister and I are going to look at the lease and see how long we have to pay the rent until we are charged a late fee. My roommate is in charge of the bills and my sister and I are going to pay him our share of the bills as late as we can. Give him some anxiety. That'll piss him off.

I wonder if he thinks we're going to end things on good terms. Well, I have a few tricks up my sleeves. My sister and I are going to continue to find people to replace us. Only problem is my roommate is not going to be happy with anyone we pick because he's spiteful. I'm going to continue to move out. I've packed a good majority of my things. The future roomie and I are going to fill out our applications today and hopefully turn them in with our holding and application fees tomorrow. From there, we wait to see if our application is accepted. This will take at least 5 days. I don't see why we wouldn't be accepted. After that, we rent a moving truck, pack our stuff, and leave. Can't wait to get out of this mess!

    If you signed a lease, you really can be held to paying the rent, whether you live there or not. Frown

    I am a little lost,

    how did you get from, your roommate offering your future roommate to live with you guys and kicking out "mean roomate", to roomates parents are holding you to your lease and so you and your sister are paying on two apartments and planning on paying your rent the day before it will be caused a late fee to stress your old roommate until you can find someone to take over your lease.

    My roommate wanted me and the future roommate to stay in the house and kick out the other rooommate. We said no. So, even though we had a verbal agreement with everyone and, I don't know, thought we could TRUST our friend, they won't let us get off the lease so we have to continue to pay the rent until November.

    Joan-We are aware of that. We will continue to pay the rent. My sister and I had a meeting with the other roommates and one of the roommate's parents two months ago. They said that we could leave on June 1st. The roommate's mom said he talked to the landlord and he said it was OK to leave. Turns out, she never talked to the landlord. We are a little angry needless to say.

    What a pain... this reminds me of how important it is to get things in writing, definitely, so it doesn't lead to headaches later! I hope that you have some insurance of being able to cover the rent until either the new tenants move in, or until November rolls around. Hopefully the former! Sorry this happened...
