Roommate's Ex-Con bf Living in Apartment
I am a Junior in college, living in an off-campus apartment with 2 roommates. We moved into the apartment this past August, and had planned to stay there until the end of next year, when we graduate. Roommate A and I lived together in an on-campus apartment last year. Roommate B is a friend of ours from work (the 3 of us work together on campus) - She has been living at home for the past 2 years and commuting to school.
In September, Roommate B's ex-con boyfriend, who had just gotten out of prison, started staying with us. Originally, he was just staying for a couple of days, which turned into weeks. Then he started looking for a job in our area (he is from out-of-state) and Rommate B approached us and asked if he could stay until he "got on his feet". Her bf is a very nice guy, despite his shady past, and we genuinely like him, so we agreed that he could stay until Jan. 1, if he paid a portion of the rent and electricity - After that he had to find someplace else.
As it so happens, the bf's job fell through (due to his felony charges) and has been unable to pay us the rent as promised. In addition, he and Roommate B got into a HUGE, violent fight (at the apartment). The bf ended up leaving and going back to New Hampshire, which Roommate A and I were happy about, because we didn't want to deal with the situation anymore.
Now Roommate B has just informed us that he is going to be living with us again because he has found another job here. We told her that he is going to have to find someplace else, as we know this is going to turn into the same situation as before - He's going to end up staying for month after month, and I'm not sure I trust that we will ever get rent money. Also, we are uncomfortable with him and his prison friends in our apartment, and we have to listen to him and Roomate B fighting constantly. All of these issues have caused bittness among us, and these are things that we have talked to her about repeatedly, but she doesn't seem to get it. As winter break starts at the end of the week (1 month long) and Roommate A and I will be going home for most of the break, we are concerned that he is going to be living there while we are gone, which we aren't comfortable with.
Any advice here? What can we say to her to make her realize that this is not negotiable, while hopefully maintaining the friendship (and living situation)? If she continues to have him living with us, is there anything legally that we can do about it, especially since he is not on the lease? (hoping it doesn't come to that). We live in Connecticut, by the way.
