How much time

How much time is it appropriate to wait til you ask your rm mate to move out after he has suffered a loss? His gf passed away it will be two weeks this Friday. Obvsly not goin to ask today or even next week. I'm just wondering how much time you would give? They only dated mayb 1 yr .... Mayb few months? How much time would you give

  • How close are you? How well is the roommate coping? Why do you want the roommate to leave? These answers would all figure in, I think.

  • Does he have family other support. Is it a tw bedroom apartment? Why can't your boyfriend move in since he will be sharing you bedroom any way?

  • Roommate seems to be coping just fine but I don't know how to read him ... I've never really seen him show much emotion

  • I would give about two months notice when you do finally tell him.

  • It really all depends. Is the roommate on the lease ? If he is, you can't ask him to move out.
    I would give him a month then tell him you are giving him 30 days to move or something like that

  • I agree with Dardenella. If another responsible adult moves in, than the rent/utilites can be split 3 ways allowing everyone some more money for saving.

  • It's a three bedroom and bc my bf has a child who will be staying with us and he can't share a room with my girls... Yes my rm mate has two lil girls he pays support for. He does help out but is no on the lease. I'm the only one on the lease.
