I had a verbal argument with my roomate and a day later Aug31 I noticed hime packing his car. He is not on the lease but has been living here for 2 months. Our agreement was that he sublet until the end of my lease (Nov.31)

Does he have to give me a written 30 day notice?
Does he owe me for the 3 months plus utilities?

He wont return my phone calls. When I asked him if he was moving out he just mumbled yes. I said "that sucks only giving 1 day's notice" he replied "yeah it sucks."

Also he left a lot of his stuff here. I was thinking of changing the locks so he couldnt get his stuff out till he paid me -- legal?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks :mad:
