oral sublettor wont leave or pay rent!
Long story short, I had to sublet the living room of my 1 bedroom apartment to a guy named Peter. Peter and I had an oral agreement. Peter (by his own choice) paid rent in cash, and did not sign anything= thus we only have an oral agreement.
Peter has been a real asshole: late rent payments, inconsiderate, etc.
anyway, he agreed to leave the apt by May 1st, as I will be leaving the apt then too. I have a month to month lease w/ the landlord. I will be going to Germany in May and need my deposit. Peter left me a message saying I’ll have to evict him b/c he doesnt want to leave by May. I need my deposit! The landlord doesnt know about Peter, but the landlord’s secretary knows about Peter’s presence. Im pretty sure the lease I have with landlord says no other occupants.
Anyway, this guy Peter is being a real asshole and threatened to stay at the apt and make my life hell. For one thing, I am the one of the lease, and my deposit is on the line. Even if I dont return Peter’s desposit, he will be living rent free on my credit! Any advice? Please help!!!
