If they are saying that your husband has to rent the whole apartment for 3 times the roommate rate, then I think that would be the same as the three of you each paying the roommate rate. Your roommate would then be his sub tenant. If they are going to do that, then they need to be willing to cancel the separate leases that they executed for you and your roommate.I live in Georgia and I signed a lease to move in August and so did my roommate. My husband did the application to move in and then they sent him the lease. My roommate and I's leases have been countersigned and completed. They just contacted my husband saying that because he is not a student that he would have to rent the whole apartment and we would have to pay 3x the rent of that for him to live together.
They never stated that it was a student only apartment complex, also if his application was not approved then they should not have sent the lease to him.
Basically I am just wondering if there is anything we can do or if I should just find a sublease, cut the loss and move on.
