if a Tenant " T " of a Sub tenant " ST " of a condominium
owner agrees to allow another unrelated party " UR " to rent one of the rooms in that condo but UR never signs a lease with T is there a legal obligation for UR to remain in the premises and continue paying rent if upon entering the premises UR discovers the following :
1) ST is still living in the room so UR needs to rent a hotel room until UR vacates
2) Upon entering the Premises UR finds the conditions of the room and condo untenable because the closets were filled with ST's property and the living had art and other personable items of ST which ST then for the first time inform UR and T that UR and T would be held liable for any damage to the valuable art ( which UR immediately refused to accept responsibility and ask ST to remove all of their personal possession only to be told no . Additionally , upon opening the refrigerator and entering the bathroom UR found mold , decayed food and filth whereby UR had to go buy cleaning supplies and spend an entire day deep cleaning those areas.
#) UR immediately place T and ST on formal notice of UR's desire to move out immediately . T and ST requested UR remain for 30 days allowing them to find a replacement .
on the 30th day UR moved out . ST is now trying the threaten UR for July rent and purported damage to some of their items.
Notwithstanding the fact that UR has been damaged by more then the amount ST is claiming UR moved on and dropped the issue . ST and now claimng that UR owes this money of they will sue UR .
I am curious is UR has any liability to ST for the following reasons:
a) UR never signed a lease or entered any agreement with ST or the owner of the condo .
b) UR had a verbal understanding with T to rent one of the rooms for a little over two months from T based upon certain conditions ,none of which were met . Hence, UR never received what UR bargained for in the verbal understanding with T .
c) UR tried to immediately vacate but was asked by ST and T to remain for 30 days and try to help find a replacement tenant.
d) UR attempted to find a replacement tenant but was told in no uncertain terms by T not to look for a replacement5 for him because he would find his own replacement tenant . To make matters worse , UR did find a replacement tenant to mitigate the situation but was yelled at by T not to give out T's number and let T find his own replacement tenant.
e) upon the 30th day , UR settled up for the time UR lived in the room and then cleaned the room and vacated the premises.
