When two people have signed a one year Rental Lease are they both responsible for paying that Lease Agreement? And if one of the people does not pay their part of the lease can I do anything to insure that the person pays their part of the Rental Lease Agreement? My room mate has not payed their part of the rent and is treating to move out and not pay their part of the Rental Agreement. I need to know what I can do to insure that I do not get stuck paying the whole years lease. I payed all the first, last, and deposit to move into the apartment and this person has not payed any of the expences so far. I got a roommate because I could not afford the rent without someone else.
I need this person to pay or move out so I can get another roommate. What do I do?
