What is the obligatgion of a sublessee with an oral agreement to pay a monthly rent to the tenant?My daughter responded to an ad placed at the Art Department at DU offering to share an art studio in Denver. She has an oral agreement with the original to rent a portion of the unit and make a monthly sublease payment. She has paid rent since October, plus a deposit and a portion of the renters insurance to use a portion of the one-room apartment for studio space. The tenant had originally agreed to lower the rent during the summer when she will be living in the aapartment full time, but has since indicated that she is not willing to do so. The terms of the agreement did not include the tenant living in the space - only that she would do so on weekends. The conditions in the apartment have deteriorated since the tenant has altered her plans and is staying in the unit for longer periods and is using the apartment to entertain family and friends and to have them stay overnight. As a result, my daughter gave notice on April 26 that she has moved out due to the change in the use that the tenant has made of the unit which does not conform to the terms of the original ad or the oral agreement that was originally in place.
