The emails focused on lots of personal things as they got to know each other. Very little with regard to Terms and Conditions though my daughter did refer to the roommate's stay as a "lease" Here is an excerpt from one of the emails from the roommate to my daughter..
"""As far as a one year lease goes, I think that definitely makes sense, and I was wondering about details that if I come out end of July, and you said you would be there sooner, when you would want that one year to start? And also, I'm not sure what my plans are for next summer, and I think school ends the end of May, how feasible would it be to sublet or only pay rent for 10 months (assuming I move or don't stay in Lewisburg, which I don't know)? """The landlord knows there is a roommate and that my daughter is thinking of having the roommate move out.
Hope this helps.
