My roommate and I signed a 12 month lease for our apartment we are currently living in and never received a copy. This is my first experience of having my name be on a lease, so I was not aware of what is considered normal Landlord - Tenant procedure regarding a lease signing, so I did not think there was an issue. I've not paid rent for this month as I plan on moving out on account of my roommate who has not had a job for 3 months and allows her friends to stay and live in the apartment for indefinite amounts of time. Is this lease even valid? Can I legally move out whenever I want without fear of legal action or consequence? What can the landlord do since I've not paid for this month and I don't plan to? And for the record, I do not wish to validate the original lease. I want to move!
