The rental contract determins your rights duties and obligations. If you have no written contract, you must have an oral contract. That being the case, you may want to write down what your understranding is and see if that issue was addressed. If there was no written or oral contract, your landloard can change the contract with written reasonable adequate notice. Is it fair to have another person move in and thus increase the utilities (such as PG&E, garbage and water) that someoen else must pay? I don't know. Read your contract.

ive been paying 300 extra, and were on a month to month basis. if i asked for my money back they will most deff kick us out after the first month. it is probably best to wait until im not staying there anymore, right? also should i ask for the money back?
