Looking for a Roommate

Having compatible roommates can be the key to a pleasant living situation. Even the best of friends may discover basic differences when it comes to their day-to-day routine. It is a good idea to draw up an agreement that covers all aspects of your living arrangement with your roommate(s) before you commit to a lease. The agreement may include items such as payment of rent, utilities, and bills; responsibility for household chores; care of pets; guidelines for hosting guests; and other conditions that may be specific to your living situation.
