@Creiddylad:  I am confused as to why it even matters if she sublets her room now. Why does that affect everyone else leaving at once?

And if you can just go ahead and sublet individually, why not just do that? This makes no sense. Can you talk to your landlord about it?

ETA: I should add that it’s 9:45 in the morning here and I’m still not fully awake. So that may be part of why this post doesn’t make sense to me :p

@Creiddylad:  I guess now you have to find an individual subleasee(subletter? subleaser?)…I would just make sure it’s someone you trust so you don’t get stuck with the bill if she doesn’t pay rent!

Sorry your roomie screwed you guys over :-/ and living with the new sub can’t be fun.

But I’m sure she was looking out for her best interest, she had someone to lease to NOW so she took the opportunity I guess…

It’s strange that a girl would be willing to move into a house where ther rest of them despise her?  

If she does not know that you despise her I can only assume that you are fake to her.  Since you despise her how about you let her know and then she prob won’t want to move in.

@Atalanta:  +1. I wouldn’t live with a bunch of mean girls who hated me. I wish girls were honest about this stuff rather than being fake nice before stabbing me in the back, lol.

@LadyBlackheart:  +1, I also don’t get it. What does a sublet have to do with everyone else? Couldn’t the other three girls leave at the same time and find new tenants? Panda confuzed :S

@Creiddylad:  if you all have individual room leases, this one girl technically can sublet her room out.  unfortunately, it’s to someone that you don’t like.

have you all discussed with this one girl, what your plans are for your rooms?  maybe she will only sublet it until the rest of you move out.

i guess if not everyone is on the same page you have 2 options:  you can either stay until july or sublet your room when you want to leave.

 

this is the reason why i never ever had a roommate.

The only other suggestion I can think of is that the three of you offer to split her rent to make up the difference between when she wants to leave and when you want to leave.

@Creiddylad:  i guess if that other girl would potentially move in, in mid november and you will be moving out in december, you won’t really have to worry too much about liking her or not.

i would just focus on subletting my room and let everyone else worry about their rooms.

are you even sure your landlord would even let all of you out of your lease in december?  if i was a landlord, i would focus on just my vacant properties to fill, not one that has a lease until july.

Well, that stinks if the girl moves in that you do not like.  But it is your roommates right to sublet her own room.  She has to look out for herself, and not base her decisions on what the landlord may or may not decide to do in the future.

Coming from someone who has had absolutely awful housemates before (stealing, spreading horrible lies, trying to seduce FI, etc.) it is possible to live somewhere and not have to spend much time with your housemates. Unfortunately, sometimes you have to suck it up and be the bigger person:( Sorry you’re in this situation. I would try to sublet your room when you graduate.

@Creiddylad:  if the girl isn’t supposed to move until mid nov and you are leaving after december, you and your roomates should just split the difference of that one month for that room and not have to worry about leasing.
