My question involves a roommate in the State of: Minnesota
two months ago I moved into an apartment with my boyfriend. we had lots of discussions with the land lord regarding rent (amount, when due) and term of lease (1 year) but we never actually signed a lease.
i am now terminating the relationship and want to move out. my boyfriend says that i still have to pay 1/2 of the rent even though i won't be living there and we never signed a lease with the landlord. I say that I can move out and he is responsible for the whole rent or he can find another room mate if he wants to stay there.
who is right? do i still have to pay rent if i move out and we don't have a written lease with the landlord?
