: : I am not on the lease of my current apartment - my roommate is,
: and he wants to move out in a few months. However, the landlord has
: cashed my rent checks in the past and I have signed two lease renewal
: forms. Do I have any chance of getting myself permanently on the lease?

: How can you sign two lease renewals and not be on the lease? The landlord
: may have created a landlord-tenant relationship with you by cashing
: your checks.

When the lease renewal forms were sent (very late, by the way - less than three weeks before the expiration of the lease) both my roommate and I signed the renewal form and returned it. The landlord never questioned this, although on our rent statement each month only my roommate's name continued to appear.

Thanks for your help.
