I agree, but the guy being outvoted doesn't see it that way. Is there any clear cut answer if the two guys remaining on the lease can't agree? Am I right in saying that if the outgoing tenant cannot find someone acceptable to the remaing co-tenants, then the outgoing tenant is responsible for the rest of the lease?

: : I live in a converted 4-bedroom in NYC. There are four tenants, three of which are named on the lease. One of those named on the lease is moving out with 3-4 months remaining on the lease, and each remaining person has their own preference to who takes the vacant room. The fourth tenant, who is not on the lease, sides with his brother (on the lease) to who should move in. Who has the final word?

: Since only the tenants named on the lease will be held responsible severally and separately for its payment, I'd say the two remaining named tenants. But you all have to live there: with 3 people, a majority is two.
