  • Is she telling you that you have to pay your rent through the end of your lease? As in for the next 2 months?? Even if you move? I am really not sure of the laws, but you have rights too. Look up the landlord tenant laws in your area, or call the fair housing board, hopefully they can give you some information. It sounds like the landlord is trying to pull a fast one IMO

  • I think you definitely have a legal leg to stand on here. She knew, or should reasonable known that there would be an additional person added to the lease before it was up. Any judge would side with you.

  • Does your lease tell you the max # of poeple for the house? Who all is living there? Is it just you, your SO and children?

  • Contact your local renters’ rights office. The laws vary by municipality.
