Landlord will send her to collections ,but I still have to pay the lease,helpI can't afford 890.00 a month,and don't understand why she can walk away and now it's all on me when I have no intention of breaking the lease like she s
The answer to this question likely depends on the terms of your lease. More specifically if the lease states that you and your former roommate have joint and several liability for the payment of the rent. Most likely you will have a valid claim against your roommate for anything that you will have to pay that should have been her obligation. You may have several options other than staying in the leased property depending on the specifics of your situation. I would recommend speaking with an attorney to discuss those options in more detail and to have the attorney review your lease to see exactly what your obligations are under the lease.
