What would you do this in this situation?
I have two other roommates, two decent friends. We signed a lease for a year on an apartment and we didnt see that the lease renews at nine months if you dont tell tham you want out... so we are stuck for another year in about 2 weeks. Well about 3 weeks ago my roommate found out about this and didnt tell me or the other roommate until yesterday, this could have been time that we could have been trying to find somebody to sublease. On top of that, both of the other roommates say this is a relief for them because they dont have to find another place immediately, but I have to go back to Texas for my mothers wedding and to prepare to go back to college starting in August. They are not willing to even split the cost to put an ad in the newspaper advertising the place... they say its too expensive and that they will just tell thier friends and whatnot. I am trying to be a friend here and I said I would stay through april to help with the bills and pay a last months rent, but they expect me to pay money even past april for the apartment... What do you guys think? Are they being totally unreasonable, or am I being a #$%^ when I tell them that I am not going to pay anything because they are so reluctant to even advertise the place?
