  • Lease + Love = Problems?

    When you sign a lease to live in a house or apartment, you have a legal obligation to pay that rent until your lease expires. Pretty simple right?  What happens when you fall in love, move-in with your significant other....and things start to fall apart? You breakup, one moves in with a friend, while the others stays put. This is a problem that Natalie Kitroeff explains much better in her New York Times article All Over but the Lease. Looking for rentals in Cleveland Ohio?

    A strange thing can happen to young couples in New York City. Just when it seems everything is going according to plan, they move in together.

    Love has something to do with it, of course. So do the challenges of New York real estate. With rents that can bring a checking account to its knees, living together can seem the only sensible option. But if the relationship goes sour in the middle of the lease, that decision can turn out to have been a wild gamble after all.

    Cassandra Seale and Mike Byhoff moved in together in 2010 after about a year of dating. He was 26 and worked at Gawker. She was his 24-year-old intern; they both seem a bit sheepish about the cliché.

    “He was in charge of training the interns,” Ms. Seale said, quickly adding, “but we didn’t start dating until after.”

    For months, the two spent cramped nights in Mr. Byhoff’s Lower East Side apartment, a three-bedroom shared with two friends and short on privacy, but seemingly a better bet than Ms. Seale’s rental in Bedford-Stuyvesant.

    “She had always lived in not the best areas of Brooklyn,” Mr. Byhoff said. “She liked me, but a really big thing for her was she always wanted to live in Manhattan.”

    When his lease was up, it seemed only rational for them to get an apartment together in the neighborhood.
