Joint several liability, group house, is this fair?

Hey there,

I understand that in general with joint several liability in a group house lease agreement, the landlord can hold any or all of the tenants responsible for unpaid rent.

In our current situation, 3 of us are moving out of a 4-bedroom house, leaving the 4th responsible for filling the rooms. We’ve been helping to fill the rooms, but it looks like some may not get filled with viable tenants by the end of the month. The landlord already said he’d be holding the remaining tenant responsible if that’s the case. Is there any recourse here?

Everything I read about joint and several liability deals with cases of other tenants not paying rent, not cases of multiple roommates who’d been on a month-to-month basis leaving. It just seems unreasonable to expect someone to be responsible for filling 3 rooms regardless of circumstances. Any help would be appreciated.

D.C. Meet and Greet Damian Kidd for Congress

I am Damian Kidd and I am running against Jason Chafffetz to represent Utah’s third congressional district. I will be available to meet with D.C. residents for a meet and greet/town hall event on Friday evening(3/17) from 5-8pm at the Key Bridge Marriott, 1401 Lee Highway, Arlington, VA Virginia

Mr. Chaffetz is losing credibility and support at home and in Washington, D.C. He has ignored the principles of limiting federal government in local affairs and local self-determination. We embrace these principles here in Utah.

When in Congress I pledge to never meddle in DC affairs and to be vocal against any congressman/woman who does.

Tenant signed contract but not moving in

Dear Popville,

I’m a first time landlord and a tenant has recently signed a lease for my house and made a security deposit (which I deposited in my bank account and cleared). However, she has gone MIA ever since and she never moved in. I have called, texted, e-mail and left her several voice message but she doesn’t respond.

What do I do in this situation? Given this type of behavior, I don’t think she would even be suitable to be a tenant. Under the contract, I included the Waiver of notice to quit in the event of non-payment of rent. What do I have to do to void the contract in this case since I don’t even know how to get in contact with her?

found cat

An adult calico was found Friday night at 11 and Maryland Ave NE on March 10, around 9 PM. She appears in good condition but has no tags to contact an owner, if she has one. We took her inside because of the dip in temperatures and coming snowstorm; owner will need to provide an accurate description of the cat to claim.

Parking During Snow

First storm in DC… do I have to move my car if I street park? I read up on the site regarding Snow Emergency Routes, but there’s nothing on regular street parking and plowing. I’m in NW where there is usually Tuesday morning street cleaning.

Thanks for any advice!

I need to get all the the electrical and plumbing rerouted in my basement so that I can get several joists sistered. It’ll also help down the line if/when we finish the basement properly.

Any recommendations for architects would do something relatively small like this?

Buying without permits

We are under contract with a house in the city and have discovered that permits were applied for but never issued. Our seller is contractually obligated to get the permits, but we think it might be easier to get additional seller credits, a more robust warranty, etc.

My question is this: Does anyone have experience owning an unpermitted home?
