My friend, call him F1, rents an apartment month to month and is required to give 30 days notice when he wants to move out. He rents to another friend of ours who is not on their lease, call him F2.
F2 told F1 that he was looking at apartments closer to his job on the 7th of January. It's now the 11th of January and F2 hasn't told him wether or not he's moving out, but it's almost guaranteed that he does.
F1 asked him for half of Febuarys rent, because F1 legally couldn't move out until March now but F2 isn't agreeing to that.
Since F2 isn't on a lease, and F1 didn't have him sign anything when he moved in, can he legally ask for half of Febuary. I personally think he should ask for all of Febuary but he's trying to be nice since they have been friends for a long time.
