Her roommate is being difficult and calling the landlord and stating she doesn't want me to stay anymore. I have 3 more days till I move into my new place. The land lord called my girlfriend and said I had to be out tomorrow morning. His agreement was five days...he stayed 7 days...left back to seattle for 3 days and came back. Does he get 5 more days? Can a roommate dictate who I can have over to my home, especially my FiancŽ?
Is my boyfriend trespassing when he has my express consent to be in my home?
First... that place is every bit as much her roommates as it is your girlfriends. If she don't like it she can rent her own place by herself after the lease expires.
And besides, like it or not, the landlord has a final say because your girlfriend was violating the terms of the lease.
Incidentally... this wasn't YOUR home in the first place.
What's wrong with renting a hotel room? Even a cheap one. Or is this about mooching or a perceived right to mooch, because this does inconvenience her roommate, in her own home (remember SHE has a right to live there, not you). In many ways.
And yes... if you have roommates... they can and in fact do have the right to say something and even prevent it if they don't like it... welcome to the real world.
Just wait until its one of YOUR roommates doing something you don't like and see how fast you change your tune.
Personaly a friend is bad enough... but a friend of a friend... you should consider yourself lucky. I'd have called the cops if the boyfriend wasn't gone the next day
Besides read what YOU stated.(the highlighted bits)... your friend let you stay... ITS NOT YOUR HOUSE.....ITS NOT YOUR HOME....YOU can't give any third party any consent to stay in the house of another....
Yes he IS trespassing.
No clock resets... your boyfriend doesn't get a free ride... the roommate doesn't want him there, YOU can't say anything about it... don't like it go rent a hotel.
