OP and their roommate initially agreed to a 14-month lease for their apartment to accommodate the roommate’s potential summer internship. OP was willing to pay during the summer despite not living there to ensure her roommate had a place to stay. However, when OP also secured a summer internship and needed the apartment, the roommate began withholding household items, even things designated for friends. The roommate hid “her” possessions, including soaps, pans, and utensils, in her room and prohibited OP from using them during the summer, even though OP was fine with replacing any items she might damage. Additionally, the roommate left the apartment in a mess with dirty dishes and spoiled food.
