レンタルホットライン 8(ルームメイト)

Q1. 先月のルームメイトの契約を読んで、質問というよりお願いがあるのですが?実はアパートを探していたのですが、思ったよりレントが高くて自分の予算内では見つけられません。それでいっそのこと部屋借りをしようと思うのですが、このルームメイト同士の契約書がうまく作れません。サポートをお願いできませんでしょうか?

A1. このRoommate Agreement、ルームメイト間の契約書は決まった書式がなく、個々のケースで作成され使用されているようです。ここで紹介するサンプルも特に不動産協会などの承認があるわけではありません。あくまでサンプルとしてご覧になってください。尚、このAgreementはルームメイト間の契約で、オーナーとの契約ではありません。もしもこのRoommate AgreementがオーナーとのLease Agreementの内容とマッチしない場合は、Lease Agreementが必ず優先されますのでご注意ください。

Q2. 学生の友達と数人で家を借りることにしました。できればお互いにルールのようなものを前もって決めたおいたほうが良いと思うのですが、こういったルームメイト同士の契約書のようなものはないでしょうか?

A2. ルームメイト同士でアパートや家を借りるというケースは、学生の間ではよくみられることなのですが、うっかりするととんでもないトラブルの原因ともなります。なるべく書式にしてお互いの立場や責任をきちんとしておくことが一番良い方法だと思います。今回はこのRoommate Agreementのサンプルをご紹介することにしました。
