I think this is the best place for this....

I've gotten fed up of where I'm living and have decided to move out. I've got somewhere lined up to move to, which should be OK to move into sometime next week (after a successful meeting with the other housemates...though there shouldn't be any problems, they seem to be more like my sort of people)

I only question is, I have an overwhelming want to just move out of my present house without telling the other housemates (I'm willing to pay my rent for the next two months, until the end of the contract).
I just feel like getting my mate to help me move my stuff out when no one else is there and then just leaving a not.

Is it really wrong to do this? I've never really got on with these guys and it's made me pretty miserable living there. They just aren't my sort of people and it might just be their sense of humour, but they aren't really that nice a people).

If you're that unhappy and you're willing to pay the rest of the rent (which I think is a good gesture) then they have no reason to complain.

The only flaw I can see in your plan is that your current housemates will (I assume) have to fill the room you leave. I would be quite hacked off if I was them and the first I heard of it was in a note.
Although if you're prepared to pay the rent I guess there's no problem.

The wouldn't have to fill the room if they didn't want to as I'm paying the rent still.

But the problem with leaving the note is what I'm thinking about. As much as I'd love to do it, it does feel wrong.

But I just want to go rushing about moving all my things out of the house when they've gone about and then leave the note and just laughing about it as we drive away...

...I've not been too happy here, so this would sort of seem like the best end to it

Are your housemates going to be living there next year as well? As their rent will increase, or they will have to find a new tenant, which is really unfair for them just to find out on a note.

Whats the big deal in just saying, 'Sorry guys, its not working out for me, i'm moving out but paying the rent until the end of my contract'?

Well one of the guys owns the house many way, so we pay rent to him. But there are new people moving into the house anyway for next year as all but one of us are finishing uni and moving on.

I just can't be bothered with facing their stupid comments and sarcasm over how they'd react to it. Maybe I just don't wan to face them, but it also seems so much more fun sneaking away like this. And seen as they won't be put at a disadvantage, I can't really see a serious reason why this might hurt them.

Anyway, I might not be able to sneak away if I can't find a time the house will be empty to move my stuff out...

It seems a bit silly to sneak around and move out behind their backs. Just be honest with them, say you're moving out and show you're being reasonable about it all. They can't really complain if you go about it maturely and rationally. I just know if I was one of your current housemates and had to find out you'd moved out by reading a letter I'd be a bit pissed off.

if they really are nasty people, then saying it to their faces could make them think a bit about the way they behave in future.

I think you should say it to their faces, leaving a note could seem a bit wussy? Like your sneaking away because your afraid of their reaction. People like that need standing up to Tell them, your unhappy because their such pains in the arse to live with.

I guess I might just be a bit scared of telling it to their faces. The note is so much easier. I just don't want the hassle of talking to them face to face. I try to avoid them in the house if I can by spending as much room in my room as possible(hence I'm on here so much) and going down stairs when no one is about. I also hate cooking in the house as they often come and just start moving my things around (once I had my pan of pasta taken out and placed in the hallway while the other housemate tried to drop coins into my other pan :rolleyes: )

aww man, they sound awful. Gah. Awquard. You'd never have to see them again though so why not just let rip? haha. If you have a friend with you maybe that would make it easier? I really wouldn't worry what idiots like that thought of you anyway Good luck!

Ok, well if you don't have an obligations for next year, theres no reason why you can't just leave a note.

To be honest though, it all seems a little petty to say that you're about to finish uni, you must be at least 20/21. If you don't like them or get on with them, why do you care what they say about you? You wont have to see or speak to them again so you should at least give them a reason for you just leaving.
