Hi there! I know you are not my lawyer- but. Myself and another person are going to be renting a two bedroom two bath flat. I met some other tenants in the building and they are renting the den as a bedroom, and a real estate agent even mentioned this option to me. The owner only wants two people on the lease, he doesn't want to feel like he is renting a "group" apartment. A friend said her Dad (an atty) helped her draw up a side contract on the side when she was in a similar situation. However, since I am not the owner of the property what rights would I have? I can't sublease the den to the third roommate because I do not own it. Any thoughts? The third roommate is willing to provide us with her ss#. thanks!
