Roommate wants to break lease, but we are on good terms, what should we do?
Long story short my boyfriend and I lease a two bedroom apartment with a roommate. The three of us have been living together for about three years on good terms without incident. Now a friend of his just moved into a new place and the rent is higher than he thought it would be, so he needs somebody to move into one of the extra rooms ASAP to help him pay the bills. Our roommate was planning on moving out anyway at the end of this lease period, but this put an extra fire under his butt to move out. He wants to move out in late May, but our lease doesn't end till July 13th. I thought about putting an ad on Craigslist, but who the hell is going to want to take over the last 2 months of a lease for an apartment that's been lived in for years, when they could just walk into the leasing office and get a brand new pristine clean one? Our roommate offered to pay half rent until the lease is up, which is better than nothing, but in a way he's still leaving us twisting if our side of the rent is going to go up by half for the mean time.
Any thoughts? If someone here has gone through, or heard of something similar let me know how you worked it out.
