I have two daughters living together in an apartment with their lease up July 1st.

Well one daughter is working and paying for her half plus, and the other daughter is not working anymore, was able to pay just one month for any expenses.

I have been paying that daughters rent, well I can't anymore, my other daughter wants her to move out so she can get a new roommate that can pay.

The problem is both names are on this lease, does anyone know what steps to take to legally make my one daughter move out. The landlord isn't helping much, they just care that they get their monthly rent and doesn't care who's paying for it.

They are living in Grand Forks, ND. Any help or advice would be appreciated, helpinND

Why would the landlord help with what is essentially a family problem?

Have you thought about where the non-working daughter is going to go after she's evicted?

It's not that the landlord doesn't care- it's that both tenants are responsible for the whole of the lease if one doesn't pay.
However, the landlord would have to file an eviction to the non paying sister to get rid of her.

Sounds, however, like this is a problem that should be solved between the two sisters. One assumes that if they are old enough to have their own apt they are old enough to solve their own relationship issues. Is the non-paying sister truly unable to get work or is she being a slacker? If she's slacking, her sister needs to give her an ultimatum.

If I were you, I'd quit helicoptering.

It is a family problem, but it's also the living arrangement where half is not being paid. At this point my non paying daughter won't work she's a slacker. So where she goes is up to her.

Yes, once this is done its up to both of them to grow up and I will stay out of it.

Thanks for some outside views of this

I think talking with landlord should be high on the list of things to do. Im pretty sure a smart and reasonable landlord would work with someone, even if there are some fees involved . I bet they prefer let someone out of a lease rather than dealing with the hassle of a tenant that has lost the ability to pay. It saves time and money to everyone involved.
