How would you split the rent?

Asking for a friend: I am considering moving into a two bedroom apartment with a couple. I would have one room (the smaller one), and they would occupy the master bedroom. Their room is very large -- close to twice the size of mine. What would be an equitable split of the rent? All utilities are included in the rent.

I'm looking for help negotiating my second year lease renewal monthly rate. How should I hold myself during the negotiation? What should or shouldn't I say?

Help me stay out of debtor's prison!

For the past 6 years, I have lived in an expensive NYC apartment (that I love), sharing the rent with my boyfriend -- but I can't carry alone since my relationship has ended. I was rocked by the breakup, didn't immediately move and managed to miss 4 months of rent as I struggled to figure out what to do. I have now found a new, affordable place and am feeling stronger. My current landlord is ok with releasing me from the lease, holds a month security, but the 4 open months add up to a lot -- more than I can pay AND move. I have emailed with my current landlord and said as much, asking what we can work out but I'm losing a lot of sleep/am a wreck over this as I wait to hear back. The landlord is decent and typically ok working with me on things -- but it's a lot of money. What scenarios might play out here? By the way, I don't have the option of tapping savings, borrowing money or going to the ex for help.

Landlord Discovered Error in Billing, Now We Owe 10 Months of Parking Fees

The management company at our apartment building just discovered that they had not been charging us for parking 10 months into our lease. We had been paying the rent amount and the parking amount for the first two months, but kept getting overpayment notices telling us to reduce our monthly payment, so I thought our number was in error. Now they want all 10 months paid back though they admit the error was on their end. Are we liable for the back fees even though we were told by them to lower our monthly payment? This is in Washington, DC.
