I rent which is 600 a month but my friends tell me I'm just throwing my money away.

If I owed more on my mortgage than the house was worth, could I just move and walk away from my mortgage. How can I be sure the housing market will not go down again?

I’ve lived in the same apartment complex since 2015.

As such, the only way any changes can occur to a lease is that if all parties to the lease (everyone who signed the lease and the landlord) agree to the change. Thus if you all your roommates and the landlord agree to allow him to remove... show more
