    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . Depending on the language of the Lease, you (and each of your co-tenants) might be individually liable for the entire rent. Practically speakings, if the remaining tenants are willing to cover each month's full rental payment, then you will have nothing to worry about. However, if there is a problem and the landlord decides to file suit against the tenants, you will most likely be on the hook.

    Read the lease, talk to your co-tenants, and (if necessary) call a local attorney.
