My roommate and I had both signed a year lease. She decided to move in with her boyfriend leaving me to pay for a $1250 townhouse rent, and three months worth of utilities. Meanwhile, our landlord threatened to evict me if I could not pay for her half of the lease. I paid it for one month before my landlord allowed me to break the lease early and move to a different apartment. Can I sue my roommate for her half of the lease that I had to pay, utilities, or any moving costs (such as a down payment on my new apartment)? Also, our damage deposit was not refunded and I had to clean the entire apartment alone. Is any of this reclaimable? I have a court date in small claims for $625, can I add the previously listed items to that? Thank you so much for your responses, my court date is in 5 days.
