If you're the only person on the lease, then you're the one responsible for the payment of rent. It doesn't matter that your landlord knew that you had 2 other roommates if those roommates were not on the written lease. With no written lease between your roommates and the property management company, they have no obligation to pay. Now, you may have a claim against them for contribution -- but you'd have to prove the existence of the verbal contract between the 3 of you.
