How much time do I have to sue my ex roommate for unpaid rent?

Asked over 2 years ago - Phoenix, AZ

Moved into an apartment with 2 roommates. One ended up leaving, I was holding up 2/3s of the the rent, meanwhile the other roommate attempted to hold hers. Roomate ended up quiting her job and left me with just a days notice of her moving out. Her name stayed on the lease and I was stuck paying the full amount alone. It's been a little over a year. Can I still sue?

    Answered . The challenge in your case is not the time to sue (you have plenty) but rather the existence of an enforceable agreement, especially given that it was oral I suspect.
