What is the best way to rent an apartment with a roommate?
In essence, how do I actually go about it and the exact process as regards paperwork that will allows for rent to be split between two or more persons in an apartment?
First of all, you need to be careful of your choice of roommates because you are actually renting as a single entity. Everyone on the lease is responsible equally. Secure the services of a lawyer and have him create a lease or binding contract that you and your roommates can sign. Keep one copy, have the roommate keep a copy and also keep a copy with the lawyer. If your roommate defaults on the lease call your lawyer and have him evicted.
