Roommates

Do you actually have a roommate when you don't hear from them in or see them over two weeks? I have a roommate, or at least I think I have a roommate, who disappears for some period of time. I have no problems with this person having a life of their own, in fact I encourage it! It is nice to not have to see a roommate every hour of the day when you're home. Not that we don't get along or anything its just nice to be able to have time to yourself to relax.

Supposedly, he was to move in, so far he's hardly been here. The dilemma that I have right now, is, do I ask him for full payment of the rent we agreed on or just a portion of it? I'm not sure if I should even ask for the rent, considering that he's spent maybe five nights here. I know I will definitely talk to him about it. From my point of view, it seems like he just wanted a place to stay for a few nights.

If all you need is a place to stay for a few nights, why would you be misleading and say you're going to move in? He was paying more for rent at the previous place than I was asking. Maybe he just can't pay the rent...that is probably why I have hardly heard from him.

Personaly, if the person says they are moving in at they agree on paying the rent that the two of you have agreed upon then this person should pay the rent wether or not they are there a lot or not... I think that you should talk to this person for sure so that you know what is going on...

I will be posting an update pertaining to this post within in the next few days. I finally have been able to get a hold of him and a few things have been sorted out, but also a couple of things are still up in the air. I will explain in Roommates pt. 2.
