Let me put it this way; the one-month rent is actually cheaper than alternatives. If he continues to try and squat at the old house, he'll be found by the old landlords. Now, technically, since he wasn't on the lease we probably should have been paying a 'guest fee' of $5/day. Which works out to about $1200+...and I don't want to give the landlord an excuse to charge that fee. Basically, I want Tex out of the house and not a problem for us in the conclusion of that lease...and a couple hundred for a month of hotel is cheaper than eviction and whatnot. Plus, then I can wash my hands of it and if he falls, he falls on his own and we don't get caught up in his falling.
That said, yes, we were all a bit too generous. I do still feel bad for him, but basically there's nothing else left for me to do in order to help...nor should I, after this. I just think this is the best closure to things.
