1.The lease agreement states that a resident may be found in default if:
You or any occupant is arrested, convicted, or given deferred adjudication for a criminal offense involving actual or potential physical harm to a person.
My roommate was arrested for calling in a fake bomb at a local mall and carrying of a concealed weapon (the charges were FALSE REPORT/SUMMON TO LAW ENF and CONCEALED WEAPON: CARRY) which are both class 1 Misdemeanors.
Would it be possible for him to be found in default and thus evicted, under these circumstances?
2.Under what circumstances would he be considered to have abandoned the apartment? My lease agreement states the apartment can only be defined abandoned if no one is living there or rent is not paid after X number of days.
