i had a roommate in an apartment complex in fla. i returned to n.y. after 6 mo. but my roomate wished to stay..he did come to n.y. with me to help me move. when he returned to fla. the hot tub we leased from the apartment complex had been stolen.my roomate was unable to find someone to share the apartment with so he returned to n.y. also but he did not pay the rent for the month after i left. i now received a bill for the cost of the jacuzzi and the month rent. i did not take my name off the lease because my roomates income would not cover the cost of the rent. Am i liable for the rent and the jacuzzi cost?



did you file a police report on the "stolen" jacuzzi?

"stolen" sounds like you've been REDNECKED!

are you gay? and you know how REDNECKS are so they "stole" the jacuzzi cause they think you have aids....


"Are you gay?" What does that have to do with a stolen jacuzzi? "AND they stole it because they knew they had aids?" How intelligent you are dj1--just because you may be looking for a hook up DOES NOT mean that this guy is gay-OK???? (Or that he wants YOU)
I do believe that since your name was on the lease, and your friends wasn't, that you will be held liable. Also, if you did not give notice to moving out, you could also be held liable for rent until the apt is rented, or the lease is up. Read your lease again, and check the provisions on moving with out a notice, damage to the apt (the jacuzzi would be considered damaged since it would have to be replaced)and other loophole in which they could get you for.
Good Luck!
