Default How would you get rid of an unwanted roommate

Someone told me a story about how they can't get rid of someone they sublet a room to. They needed legal help in this matter. I did not get all the details but if this happened to me I think my first course of action would not be to get legal help. Something along the lines of using a baseball bat would definitely work . So, how would you get rid of an unwanted roommate?

Yes, but some people just don't get it and want to make life a little bit more difficult for everyone else. But, of course they do not see it from this point of view however.

Do what we did.

Didn't like one of our roommates so we basicly said fsck off. We stopped talking to him and after a while he just stayed in his room. He never comes out if we have friends over. Then we went bought another apartment without him.

Granted this is the worst way to do it but hey, it worked.

Act gay around him, touch him etc and tell him how much you want him.

And hope he's not like LordJezo.

If there is a river nearby, you're all set. :evil:

Seriously though -- Try talking to him first -- you may find them to be pretty reasonable.

Default RE: How would you get rid of an unwanted roommate

OK, legally, i think you're expected to give your roommate 30 days notice... Don't worry - there's a cool way to get around this.. First, you need to get someone that doesn't really have a lot of familiar connections - a homeless person, prostitute, hobo (not homo, you homophobic anantechers!), etc. When I say "get" I mean by any means necessary- there are many great,easily obtainable chemicals that can knock a grown man out for a good amount of time.. Then, get a nice, sharp, preferably steel cutting instrument and proceed to vivisect this individual... Save their organs in a cool, dry place- I picked up a "Foodsaver" vacuum sealer - keeps everything very fresh.. Now you may want to use all of these organs at once- DON'T! First, place one small body part in a spot that's clearly visible to your roommate.. When he/she asks what that is just refer to it as "lunch." Then, slowly, litter the room more liberaly with the body parts.. A heart in the medicine cabinet, a spleen in the bread box.. Eventually, lead up to severed reproductive organs on or in his/her bed.. Eventually, your roommate should leave on his or her own, without the need of an uncomfortable confrontation...

Give him/her 30 days with a written notice and then contact the Sheriff's department to evict them.

That only works if his name isn't on the lease. If his name is on the lease, he has the right to stick around until the lease expires. In that case, you have to prove WHY he is not a suitable roommate.

Turn his pillowcase inside out, and wipe my ass with it. Make sure the stink nuggets cover a wide area by spreading them around with his toothbrush. Turn it back to normal and put the pillow back in.

The poster says the room was sublet. That means the original tenant is the landlord to the subletter. He can evict them in most states.

Slip love notes under the door when he's in the shower, hide under his bed and when he goes to sleep, reach your hands up and massage his thighs, or maybe after a long days work, just sit down on his lap and cuddle up.

Either he'll fall in love with you or run fast!
