my roommate moved out and left me with his 1/3 of the bills can i hold his things till he pays me



NO you cant wink wink hint hint.....

You have to sue him in small claims court for the 1/3 since you have a lease and he signed it and is legally responsible for it.

BUT you MUST pay the landlord the FULL amount or you will be evicted.

So start looking for a new roomate, give the old one 10 days to paick up the stuff or you will toss it, keeping a few things to yourself..hint hint...
