My house mate moved out 6 months into a 12 month lease and thinks she doesn't have to pay utilities. she signed a promissory note saying she would pay half of all utilities till 8/1/17. There were no issues she just wanted to move home. She never told me, she just moved.
You didn't say whether she was named on the lease and signed the lease which would help your case. But if you have anything in writing that she signed then I would take her to small claims court. Despite the fact that you do not have to bring a lawyer with you to small claims court, your case would be better prepared and presented if you were represented a professional.
