This sentence in the writing challenges had me fooled: Mon meilleur ami Pierre, qui jusqu'à l'année dernière partageait un trois-pièce avec moi....

My thought was the jusqu'à means the action ended, and thus, I used the passé composé. I realized it had been a habit, but how does one know what to do when more than one rule applies?
