This Roommate Rental Agreement is being made between (“Primary Tenant”) and (“Roommate”) on the date of signature below, and sets forth the expectations and responsibilities of both parties relating to the sharing of the residential property located at (“Residence”). Moreover, the lease agreement does not decide the behavior of the roommates towards each other. Since the behavior of the tenants does not violate the law, roommates are free to do anything. In addition to that, it is likely that your roommate can leave the apartment and never return, leaving you to pay the rent. Utilities – The landlord may opt to pay all, some, or none of the tenant’s utilities. Most will provide some, such as water/sewer, but most will elect the tenant to decide for themselves whether cable, internet, and any other they decide to have. Vacation (Short-Term) Rental Agreement – For a term that usually ranges only for a few days between an owner of a home, apartment, condominium, or any other type of residence. Imagine your roommate walking in with their friend for a night stay and that overnight stay turns them into a permanent guest at your apartment. They might start sharing your things, space and other utilities.
