  • poll: What should I do?

    Stay there & just deal with it for another month. Who needs sleep?

    Rent a storage unit & move everything I own there & cut off the bills & stay somewhere else

    Pack up my entire room & move all stuff into my room & keep on bills & stay somewhere else

    Other (please advise)

    Wow that sucks, why won’t the neutral guy pay you either?

    Terrible situation.  Small claims court and see how they like it.  My only suggestion is calmly discussing this with the landlord in a face-to-face meeting.

    I had bad roomies before but not like this…. I would take them to court.

    At the very least, can you send them a certified letter from a lawyer stating: “You owe me $X in back bills from date X – date X.  If you don’t pay me back by X date, I will be turning this over to civil court.”

    This way, they know you are serious.  I would definitely rather pay from a warning letter than have to go to court.

    I feel it would DEFINITELY be a conflict of interest and you should look for legal help elsewhere. Your landlord has something to lose when you all move out no matter how “nice” he is. I’m sorry, but even “nice” people are sometimes just in it for themselves.

    yeah, I agree with Potatoes.

    I’m so sorry this happened to you; hopefully the neutral roomie is going to be considerate!  I had to clean up after my nightmare of a roommate (some very unsanitary conditions let me tell you).  But the peace of mind knowing that I’ll never have to deal with her again was worth it!  I hope you’re able to get your money!  Small claims court and seek some legal advice, just open the phone book and call around if you can have a free consultation.
