Unfortunately there's to many details, but short version, picture everything annoying a roommate can do has happened at least once. Early on my roommate agreed they would work with me on finding THEM a new roommate that would release me. I gave them a 3 month notice (actually a little more than that) so that there was ample time to find a good roommate replacement. In an argument they stated via text that they will be holding me to my lease, basically to piss me off. I've suffered from lack of sleep, due to my roommate, and have had associated symptoms cause by this Per a Medical Doctor. I have a list of complaints, and I'm preparing to refuse to pay rent and force us both into the eviction process. Today the manager was informed w/ documentation and notifiedthat I will be seeking council
I think you're on the right track. You need to speak with an attorney. Having an unlawful detainer on your record is a horrible thing. Be careful with how you proceed. You're making lots of assumptions (that your damages are going to be significant/relevant) and that the documentation you prepared carries any weight.
Talk to a good landlord/tenant lawyer.
on a side note, this sounds personal. And remember, Personal is always bad for business.
