I'm currently renting a house and am subleasing rooms to three other people. I had signed a lease with the property owner, while the other tenants signed individual leases with me.
One of the roommates is unpleasant for a number of reasons, and while he doesn't have a bad attitude, he doesn't correct his behavior if anyone talks to him about it.
I'm only here for a couple of years for school and I had thought that I'll just deal with it, but one of my other, easier to live with roommates has told me that he's leaving if the first one stays, the main reason being safety. We've had attempted burglars, and the first one isn't careful about locking doors or closing windows when he leaves.
I know that he wants to stay, and I feel like I should have discussed the possibility of him leaving sooner, but I'm here now.
Is there a way I can gently tell him to search for another place to live, and still be able to live with him until the lease expires in August?
I should clarify that the roommate isn't a bad guy per se, but he has some habits that are at odds with the rest of us. He doesn't keep common spaces clean, and he will have people over without telling us or engaging us with his friends. It's stressful to have him around for reasons like these, so if someone is to leave, I would prefer that it's him. I'm not concerned for my safety of that of the property because of him, although it is concerning when he leaves a door unlocked and there are burglars around.
