Living arrangements are always changing and for a variety of reasons. If your roommate decides to move out, it can be a bit challenging to know what you should do next. After spending time living with somebody else, it can be challenging to adjust to either living by yourself or picking a new roommate. If you follow the next steps below, you can start to adjust to your apartment roommate living somewhere else and figure out what to do next. Read on to learn more!
Settle All Debts with Your Apartment Roommate
If you haven’t already kept track of all your shared expenses, you could use a couple of financial apps to help you determine how to split up your costs. Even if your apartment roommate is moving out early, they’ll probably owe a few expenses. If you have not already settled your equal payments for things like furniture, security deposits, your utilities, or rent, make sure they’re resolved.
Talk with Your Apartment Manager about Your Apartment Roommate
If your name and apartment roommate’s name are both on the lease, discuss it with your landlord and apartment manager right away regarding the new change. Updating your lease is as easy as filling out a form, but both you and your former roommate are required to complete it, not the apartment manager.
Help Your Apartment Roommate Pack
You can be an excellent friend and ex-roommate by helping your roommate move out and pack. Packing is a big undertaking, and having help not only makes it faster and easier but a bit less sad. If you are not on the best of terms with your roommate, then you should still help them back to make sure they don’t forget anything.
Consider Both Your Wants and Needs
After your apartment roommate finally moves out, you now have a chance to decide what to do next. If you like sharing an apartment with someone else, or you need somebody else to share the rent payment with, you should start your search for a roommate as soon as possible. However, if you think you may enjoy living alone for a bit and can afford it, take some time to see if you would like to keep it that way. You could also evaluate the apartment and re-do your kitchen, bedroom, living room, or patio. One last option – you could move from a two-bedroom into a one-bedroom apartment too. Nows the very best time for you to explore every single option you have.
