Re: Repost: Advice only. No BASHING others pls by Katiekate (New York ) on September 29, 2017 @11:52

I have been renting to various roommate situations since the early 90s

This is the manner I treat this.

Everything must be in writing. I don't mean email or text. Send or deliver letters.

The deposit is not returned to anyone until the place is completely empty. It is between the roommates how they want to handle this situation.
If the remaining tenant subsequently wants to get a new roommate, I remind them that any prospect must fill out an application and pass background criminal credit checks with me. I am the final word in it.

Then, the lease. The roommate moving out must sign a release with me and with the one staying. A new lease is signed first..between me and the remaining roommate. I am not signing a release until I get the new lease signed. THen I will changed the insurance.

This is really common. Especially with students.
