I think it's time (way past due) for me to move out of my folks house and find a place that I can rent or room with someone else. What should I know before taking that step? How much money should be allotted per month? What's protecting me against any lawsuits? Anything you can thinkof let me know. I've lived with roommates while I was going to school, so I have a good grasp on the anatomy of rooming with others. I leased through school, so thismonthly (biweekly, what have you) rent is going to take some time to get used to. How old were you when you moved out? Why do you think I shouldn't move out?
