Do I need to pay rent before moving in or even signing the lease?
I booked an apartment with two other people. It was under 6months's lease which started in December. Although I didn't stay for a single day in December I still had to pay the rent and security deposit. Now since my classes are online I decided not to move in at all. Am I liable to pay the rent for rest of the 5 months? Or find a replacement? Ps- I haven't signed or seen the lease yet. My co tenants are already staying there and have signed it.
