I am in a leasing contract that ends at the end of May. I just found out that my roommate had gone to renew the contract in March, since otherwise the rent would have increased.
The renewal is a single page document which includes the statement..
THE SIGNATURE OF ONE RESIDENT IS BINDING UPON ALL RESIDENTS
I do not wish to continue on this lease, is this renewal actually binding for me? How can someone sign a renewal that is legal binding to me when there is no such statement that "one roommate signing is binding to all roommates" in the original lease.
Also, if it is not binding, is it legal for the leasing agency to have that statement printed on the document? Isn't it a misguiding statement?
