Story Over the past few months, I had a conflict with my housemate - so-called A. Specifically, my house is rented on a joint venture contract of four people, including me, A, and a couple. Total rental costs are $48,000 per year, with estimated costs of birth equaling 30% of total expenditure, or about $14,400. All prices and obligations such as house cleaning are divided equally among all four people based on a typical living plan that has been approved by all parties. In case the tenant wants to leave, they only need 3 months' notice from the landlord to get the deposit back. However, after about 2 months of living together, we realized that A had an inappropriate lifestyle. She is a messy person and does not clean up both her room and the living area. A never turn off electricity or water and make noise during everyone's rest. We advised A many times and even asked the host's intervention to resolve the situation, but they were all useless. Specifically, the most essential purpose we aim for is to cooperate with all home members to create a healthy living environment. We hope that the housemates will be organized, polite, and not make a too loud noise when people rest or need to focus. We also strictly ask everyone to follow an agreed and conscious cleanup schedule in keeping with births. However, A has a hobby of living up to her personal needs, including personality clutter and speaking out loud. A also has an active schedule against us, so during the time we sleep, especially at midnight, she likes to watch movies or talk without accepting headphones. Therefore, we wish A could terminate the contract and leave, but she did not take that. Therefore, other parties accept these conflicts as conflicts of lifestyle and legitimate interests of the parties. Initial diagnosis Based on the validity of the contract, A signed a clear 1-year contract with the landlord. Therefore, even if she has an unhealthy lifestyle, we cannot force her to leave without the host's help. The agreement states that A must only go then violate the terms of the rent or cause problems in the area. In this situation, if she continues to live, A is also affected by our isolating attitude based on her perspective of life. Besides, in the event A must leave, she also faces the risk of not finding a new home and financial problems arising from the move. Based on the joint venture of the original contract we signed, when A left, we were forced to find someone to replace her. We also have a conflict of interest with the landlord where he wants to maximize his profits. Based on the nature of the joint venture contract, even when A leaves, we are forced to find a replacement and be responsible for the costs incurred by 4 people while the reserve is not available.
