Re: Roommates Won't Allow Me To Get Out Of The Lease by Katiekate (New York) on June 13, 2014 @21:03

"They"? Who is "they"? The landlord cannot hold you past the final day of the lease. this is not a permanent endenturment...geez

Roommates cannot hold you hostage.

The lease says the final day of the lease. Give your notice to the LANDLORD...the roommates do not get to tell you that you must live with the forever. Geez

Take option 2

Give your written notice to the landlord...send a copy to the roommates if you want...but you are not required to get their approval. Geez

Sorry. "They" would be the the landlord who works for Re/MAX and manages the property that my roommates and I are renting. She said that I do in fact have to get my roommates' approval because we are on the same lease together. Is this not accurate? We have to come to a mutual agreement on a decision and sign a notice together, otherwise, anything else sent to them would be invalid and would be the same as not sending them anything at all, and would result in the lease being converted into a month to month.

If I send them an individual notice (signed by me only) via Certified Mail, do you think that would be sufficient to protect myself if the landlord decides to sue me when I leave at the end of my lease?

    That is a bunch of signed a lease for one year. Period. Now that year is over. Give notice and leave. You cannot be legally bound to the roommates going forward. There is nothing he can sue you for. The lease is over and YOU WILL NOT sign the next one. Worst is that you may lose your deposit but heck then you can sue them for it. Take good pictures and video of the place before you leave. Clean it up too. Maybe you should tell them you are getting a lawyer now. They are dead wrong here.
