    Apartment Lease

    Here is my situation....My roomate and I signed a lease for an apartment August 2010 for one year. August 2011 comes around and we wanted to renew the lease for another year. My landlord never got around to giving us the papers to sign and after constant reminders we just gave up. We still pay the same rent as usual and there is no problem. My roomate and I are currently not in a good place, and I do not wish to live with her anymore, however we both refust to move out. My question is can I make arrangements with my landlord to sign a lease with my name only starting May 1st so that I can legally control who lives at the apartment.

    If you did not sign another year lease, you are likely on a month to month lease now. You can make that arrangement, with the landlords approval, however, your roommate must either leave voluntarily after being served notice or evicted via process. I don't think the landlord will be willing to pay for any resistance.
