Am I screwed?
    #1705919 - 07/11/03 02:54 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

Ok I went into an apt w/ a friend who isn't so bright. Big mistake. We had a lil op in a walk in closet. He was chillen w/ the wrong people and they cought on and we got robbed. They broke in through a window and took everything. I was fired from my job and now we have no way of paying the rent. I didn't report it to the police of course. Now I want out of the lease and it's under my name co-signed supposedly by my dad but at the rent free place that found me apt new my dad never even came in and just me and my room mate signed the actual lease. Theres a $1,600 securtity deposit on it. My drunk roomate ruined the entire living room carpet spilling shit everywhere. We also cut holes in the wall into the closet for ventalation. I have no money to have it fixed and don't know how either. Im thinking of just writing her a letter saying she can keep the $1,600(two months rent) its the tenth today. that was my roomates room that got robbed who moved out of state. We have no more money now and Im sorry its a big mistake for ever getting the place and put the keys in there tell im done with the lease. I completely cleaned out all lights vacumed out closet got rid of everything incriminating for pot. Except holes in the wall. Can she do anything like come after me and sue me in court is it likely. Should I be sweating this? Im about to send out the letter let me know.

Just fix the damn hole man, look it up on the net it's so easy I did it once when I was like 10 and hacked up my wall with an exacto knife. I don't even think the stuff to fix it is expensive. But as for the legal stuff I have no idea.

well, you'll have to buy a sheet of drywall then and cut it to fit the holes.

I think if you stay calm you should be able to work through this semi-smoothly :smile:

It sounds like you know how to think, so don't let this bother you too much.

All you can do is use this experience to avoid ones like it in the future.

You're not "screwed." You're OK. Stay calm and "collected."

Well I'm not sure if you can think or not considering you started a grown op with a fuckwad like that. And you signed a lease with someone you must not have known well. If you did know him than thats even worse.

Anyway, you should be able to fix the wall and clean the carpet for less than $200. obviously it is worth it. What is the penalty for getting out of the lease early? You might be able to make a deal to stay until they get a new renter and avoid a penalty.

Chalk it up to experience and make some better decisions next time.

I'd say if the carpet is ruined, that would be your bigger problem right there. New carpet would be more expensive then getting those holes fixed. Think about renting a carpet cleaner for a day or something...

Roomates can be assholes, no doubt about it.
As far as damage to the apt goes, some things fall under normal wear and tear, you may very well get some of the security back, I wouldn't worry about being pursued in court for this, landlords see much much worse! Is the carpet replacable at a reasonable cost?

Thanks for all the replies. I just decided to leave the holes in the wall. She(land lord) hires these haitain guys to come out and do repairs. I sent her a letter saying she can keep the $1,600 Im very sorry but I lost my job and It was a mistake getting a room-mate. We got robbed and have no more money to pay rent I included the keys in there. She tried calling my dads house today but I deleted the message. It sucks because she thinks he cosigned on the damn thing when me and my friend where the only ones that ever signed the actual lease and we were the only ones looking for the apt. We went through this weird agency thing that finds apts. Im avioding talking to her because I think she will probably be pretty pissed about it. They own alot of properties though so Im sure its not the first time this happend to them. It would probably cost more money to hire an attorney and come after me then to just fix the place and re rent it. Hopefully she wont ruin my credit or my dads credit. I really learned a lot from that whole experience. I kept her number though should I call her back? What should I say if she calls again and I accidently answer the phone. Somehow she got this number of where my dad lives. I don't know how. I would really prefer to just let time blow this whole thing over and not talk to her ever again if possible.

An easier way than talking in person or phone would be by letter, either actual mail or email. Or have your dad or a friend come in with you (safety in numbers). It's probably best to have it all resolved than to have it come and bite you in the ass later.

Take out a copy of your lease that you signed when you moved in and see what that says. Did you say she said that if you don't take care of the stuff, she'd keep the $1600? She may plan on reporting you to the credit bureau or whatever. Look in your lease and see what it takes to break a lease. The way most apt. complexes around here do it is they take any money they have from you/that you give them, and apply it to repairs and past due rent first, before applying it to newer/current fees. So even if she keeps the $1600, she may plan on trying to get you to pay for current rent and for breaking the lease and stuff. You could just ignore it, but it might get reported and go on your credit. If your Dad signed the lease or was a cosigner, same for him - but if his name doesn't show up on the lease anywhere, he should be safe.

Good luck getting it resolved, sometimes apt. managers can be cut thoat bitches.
