i moved into an apartment-condo (in minnesota) over 3 years ago but was not added to the lease and did not sign anything. however, i pay my share of the rent directly to the landlord-owner of the condo. all agreements (with the roommate) on sharing bills, amenities, etc. was done verbally. this included sharing the one spot in the underground garage - would be rotated on a weekly basis.
a few months after i had moved in, i started a job that required me to travel out-of-town during the week. so, my roommate, who is on the lease, asked me if she could use the garage spot on a continual basis "since i wasn't really using it". i agreed at the time. however, this fall/winter i no longer was working out of town and informed her (a couple months ago) that i would be sharing the garage spot with her. she finally agreed and we rotated the garage spot on a weekly basis. however, this morning she wrote me a letter stating that she is no longer willing to share the garage spot and if i don't agree to that stipulation i can consider this my 2-month notice for moving out.
my questions are...
is there any way i can force her to honor her original agreement on sharing the garage spot... and stay in the condo?
does she have the right to kick me out of the apartment? or can this only be done by the landlord? does there have to be "just cause"? what happens if i don't move out? isn't there a law in minnesota that prevents evictions during the winter?
