Can managers rent apartments that are under a contract in someone elses name out to another person?
I was recently renting a room, and from one day to another my roomate who is on the rental contract just dissapeared never came back home one night.i later found out through his mom that he had gone to a mental facility. upon me moving in, we both spoke to the manager to check if it was alright with her, manager is not landlord, and she said yes but decided not to include me in rental agreement, i needed the place bad so i didnt make a big fuss about it. ever snce my roommate moved out i talked to the manager to see if she could add me to the contract or switch the contract under my name and has denied to do so, but says i can stay there until my roommate personaly goes to her and tells her he is no longer living there. in my case its hard to do so because like i mentioned he is in a mental facility. i asked for the landlords number and says shes not allowed to give it to me..is any of this legal? p.s when i pay rent i pay by money orders ALL signed by me, but when i get the rental reciept its under my roommates name.
