Colorado: I Understand that my landlord can charge me for rent if I move out before my lease ends, but this is my problem: My current Roommate quit his job 2 months ago (2 weeks after signing a 1 yr. lease) and has not paid me or the landlord any rent. Both of us signed the lease at the same time. Can I request that that landlord evict just my roommate if I continue to pay rent? Also I want to end the lease because I will not be able to afford full rent for very long. If I request that the apartment be listed as available, and a new person takes possession of the apartment, can I move out without paying any fees for breaking the lease?



When you sign alease you are responible for ALL the rent.

The Landlord doesnt care who pays it just as long as it is PAID IN FULL!

So have you read your lease? NO or else you would ask.

Do you have any rights to get another roomate? if the landlord agrees YOU pay for the ad and find a roomate.

If not ask the landlord to advertise the aaprtment and YOU pay for the ad and YOU show the apartment and YOU help the landlord find someone to sign a new lease.

As Long as the landlord loses no rent on you, then you should be ok.

Also you can sue the former roomate in Small Claims Court its cheap for the rent he stiffed you for!

He is legally responsiblefor his share just like YOU.
