I've given my LL a 30-day notice on a month to month apt. I have to be moved out by sept 31. The thing is though, I still need a roommate to cover the other half of the rent in the apartment, which is a 2 bedroom. My LL has said he would not allow me to have a roommate regardless because I'm leaving anyway. Now I could just let it slide, but there's no way I want to pay in full for a 2 bedroom apartment. Negotiations/talks are useless at this point and frankly, I'm frustrated at the stubbornness of my LL.
I was thinking, since I'm leaving anyway, I'd go ahead and get a roommate, make copies of the keys, and just disregard my LL's denial. I figure, all he could do(legally) is get a court order for an eviction, but I'd be out the door either way. Now, I wouldn't want to put the to-be roommate in a bad situation, what exactly can the LL do to him or her? I've talked to several potential roommates who need a short-term place and are flexible on moving in/out dates so it might not be a big deal if the LL evicts them as well. So should I go thru with it?
