Renting an Apartment
Here are some guidelines that are useful when dealing with a roommate:
1. Rent: Each roommate should pay an equal portion of the rent and is responsible for paying the landlord. Make sure you understand the lease contract you have signed.
2. Food: Each roommate should be responsible for his/her own food. All other personal products (shampoo, toothpaste) should be the responsibility of each individual.
3. Cleaning: Each roommate should be responsible for cleaning his or her own room. Chores for the rest of the rental, including vacuuming, dusting, and cleaning the bathroom, should occur once a week and rotate between roommates. No one should leave dirty dishes in the sink for longer than 24 hours, and each roommate should clean-up after his/herself in the kitchen every day.
4. Utilities: Each roommate is responsible for a portion of the charge for water, trash pick-up, electric, and cable. If bills are paid late, serious consequences, like termination of service can occur. Please be responsible.
5. Guests: Each roommate may invite guests, if the visits are approved by their roommates
