I'm renting a room month to month not on a lease. I have two other roommates. One of the roommates is the leaseholder. She has decided to take a job in Atlanta Georgia. The rest of the roommates are now stuck, either find another place to go or take over the lease. Less than two weeks notice has been given to us, do we have any recourse?

Other answer:

Mo:
Florida law only requires a 15 day notice by either party. Your options are to either find another roommate or move out.
R P:
Without a fixed term lease, you are on a month to month rental agreement & are only entitled to 15 days written notice to vacate. This notice must be given prior to the end of the curent rental period.
Stoo:
Get another roommate who's responsible and re-do the lease in your names. Not much you can really do here, although your roommate is leaving your hanging with only two weeks notice. She should be prepared to pay her last month and/or help you replace her.
tro:
none of you are on the lease actually you have no rights at all
the lessee is leaving thus defaulting on the lease, that one has the problem with penalties etc and since you are not on the lease you no longer rent, your landlord is leaving
whether you can work with the landlord to sign a lease with you and the other roommate, it is not likely you can 'take' over her lease
JMITW:
you can sue for the lease holders portion of the rent if you stay and hope you win….Florida requires 15 or 20 days notice (i don't remember which)….the building owner can file for eviction immediately after the lease holder terminates the lease…but by law they owe the building owner more notice, unless he agrees to less.

assuming it is 15 days notice required…2 weeks is less than 15 days…therefore you were not given required notice…and the lease holder is liable to you

sunshine_mel:
If you're month to month, you should receive one full months written notice.
coraann:
None. That is the downside of renting month to month.
