My question involves a roommate in the State of: Massachusetts
My boyfriend lives in an apartment with a roommate, and they are both on the lease. The other night his roommate informed himn that he is moving out in 23 days. My boyfriend went to the office, and they informed him that his roommate would be obligated to pay his half of the rent for the 7 months left on the lease. Is this true? My boyfriend does not know anyone that could live with him, and he does not want to live with someone he does not know.
When the roommate found out that he was going to have to pay 7 months rent, when he wasn't living there- he made it ugly. He told the office that he had to leave because he was unhappy and felt scared living with my boyfriend. Nothing happened to prove this. Is this reason enough to break the lease?
He then told the office that both me and his own girlfriend are living there. Technically, neither of us live there, but we both do stay over every night. She actually pretty lives there- she goes to class, and then goes back to their apartment. I got home during the day- I shower, eat meals, etc at my own house with my mother. Because his gf is under 21, she will not have to sign the lease, but I would have to if I live there. I believe he is trying to get our 3 names on the lease, so the rent would be split 3 ways. How can I prove that I don't really live there other than showing my license or just saying it?
I just want to know how this situation looks. I will not be staying at my boyfriend's apartment anymore. Is there anything we should know to ensure that his roommate has to pay all the money he owes?
