My boyfriend and I have a roommate in our apartment who is on the lease (all tenants have to be on the lease). He pays his bills on time but.... over the 2 years that he has lived in the apartment due to his lack of sanitation and hygiene we have lost 5 other roommates who say they can not share a bathroom or kitchen with him. Also about a year and a half ago (before I moved in) they had a rat problem. I'll detail the sanitation issues:
1. Has fast food/wrappers/dirty dishes in his room that have been there for more than a month and they only time they are cleaned is when the stench from his room starts affecting the entire apartment.
2. Uses other people's cooking utensils or pots and doesn't clean them or his own for periods of more than a month.
3. Washes his clothes maybe once a semester but perhaps less.
4. Has never cleaned the bathroom (and the responsibility falls on me everytime we have guests over so they don't vomit)
But recently the issue has reached a head because whenever he opens the door to his room you can smell the stench in the house for the next 5-10 minutes.
We have shared with him many many times our concerns and that we would not like rodents. Other roommates have also told him this and stated that they loved us but could not stand to be in the same apartment as him.
How do we get him off the lease and subsequently get him to clean up his mess before he leaves?
Or because he is my bf's friend how can we FORCE him to clean?
We really don't want to move (our apartment has a great view of the mountains and is in a great location)
