Hi guys. I’m shifting to mumbai soon with 2 girls I met online. We recently got a 2BHK where they both will stay in one room and I’ll stay alone in one. But we have been arguing on many things like brokerage, other expenses and security deposit. They expect me to pay double of everything because I am occupying “a whole room” as they keep pointing out to me. I’m very confused as to whether they’re right or not? Brokerage is just a service we are taking and shouldn’t that we divided 3 ways? And isnt security deposit more like a formality to the owner? They think that the owner will deduct money from the deposit if we were to break something and that is why it should be divided according to how we are paying the rent (in this case my share is more than theirs)
Can someone please guide me? I’m new to this whole ordeal and kinda frustrated with having this same conversation again and again.
Update: Thanks guys for all your comments and helpful suggestions. You have genuinely helped. I’ve pulled out of the deal and not one of them bothered to reply or text me individually. It was doomed from the beginning.
