The Question Club
1) I'm currently renting a room in a woman's house, and have been doing so since January. There was no formal lease, just a month-to-month agreement.|
The other room was rented out by a grad student who is graduating this month and moving out at the end of May. When the owner of the house showed another person the other student's room, the owner printed up a list of new rules for her renters, including one that said "Give minimum 2 months' advance notice before moving."
I've finally found another place closer to work to move into, and plan on moving at the end of May as well.
Do I have to abide by this new rule, or can I give her my notice tonight when I pay rent for May? Like I said, there was no formal agreement, so I don't know what would be polite.
2) The place I'm looking at is a 2br, 1bath condo in an apartment complex, so I won't be living in a woman's house like I have been, with me just paying my share of utilities and rent and her dealing with the paperwork.
When i move into said condo with my roommate, do we set up electric/gas/water services ourselves, or is that done by the owner of the condos? If we have to do so, how does one go about that? Or should I be asking the owner all this?
