The legally binding language is likely whatever the original signed 2 year lease said about automatic extensions if neither you nor they gave timely notice to vacate at the end of the original term.

I'm currently making below the poverty line, but I'm getting by. 20k alone invested today isn't going to prepare you for retirement.

You're ignoring the fact that your brother derives value from living in the apartment. Fair to me in your situation would be: Split costs as before Split rent on the one unit as before. And you get the majority of the rent on one of the units, as you used to get that value by living there. I'd say it's less than 100% of the unit's rent because it's likely ...
