Their party, their guests, they pay.

Are you on the lease? Technically whomever signed the lease is responsible.

Hmm, that’s a tricky situation.

Is there one of the roomates you are closer to that you’d be able to talk to about this? Maybe if you can get one or two girls on your side you can get out of it. I totally agree, you should not be obligated to pay.

I guess the other option is, that if they aren’t really your friends and you aren’t that close, what would be the consequences of just not paying for it? As long as your name isn’t on the lease, I don’t think you are technically responsible.

If you’re moved out, you don’t have to deal with them. So say “I’m not paying for something your guest did” and leave 🙂

Is that literally the ONLY damage that will be taken out of the deposit? It not, it’s going to be really difficult to convince them to break it down and pro-rate, I think, fair or not. 

Personally I think the person who melted the carpet should be responsible to replace it (guest or not!), but I don’t know if everyone would see it that way. I know if I were to damage something in someone’s home, I would offer to pay for it.

Can you talk to the landlord, let him know that you aren’t actually living there anymore, and weren’t involved in the damage?
