my roommate's and my name are both on the lease. But the landlord only accept one total rent pay check from us. So usually my roommate pay me her part of rent by cash, and I pay the landlord the whole rent through my own check. But now my roommate refused to reimbursed me for her part of rent after I paid the landlord the whole rent. What can I do to get the money back from her? Can I sue her?
If I abandon the lease too, the landlord could sue both of us. What will the worst consequence be in that case?
