Can I Be Held Responsible for Other Tenants' Damage to the Common Area?
I moved into an apartment near a college campus a few months ago. I'm a college student, as are the other residents of the 12-unit building. I noticed a paragraph in my lease that bothered me. It says that all residents are "mutually responsible for any damages to common areas except for normal wear and tear." Is this legal? How can I control the behavior of people in other apartments?
