    Default How to Legally Kick Out Your Roommate

    My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of: Maryland

    Hello how is everyone?? I have an issue and need some legal advice. My roommate and I shared a 2 bedroom apt together. We moved in together on March 15th. And already having issues that we both can't agree on.

    Ever since we moved in she hasn't been able to come up with her full rent on the first and I'm the one that has to cover her. Matter of fact I even paid her entire half before we moved in. And the last two times I have to spot her money to cover her half and also have to wait past the 1st of the month.

    And I'm tired of it. We've been having problems and I told her if she doesn't have her full rent on the first I will give her a 30 days notice for eviction.

    Both of our names are on the lease but I'm listed as head of household.

    She told me that I couldn't kick her out and if she doesn't pay her rent, that we both would get kick out.

    Now is this true?? Even if I can cover her part if the rent and get a new roommates name on the lease??

    Please help I am trying to legal actions immediately.

    are you both on the lease as tenants?

    If so, you are stuck with the person until the end of the lease.



    She told me that I couldn't kick her out and if she doesn't pay her rent, that we both would get kick out.
    unless the lease actually lists each of you liable for only part of the rent, you both are equally liable for the total amount of the rent. That means, if the rent is not paid in full by somebody, both of you would be in breach of contract and subject to eviction.


    Even if I can cover her part if the rent and get a new roommates name on the lease??
    are you allowed to sublease? if not, that isn't going to work unless ALL parties involved allow for a novation of the lease. That would be where the new roommate takes the place of the roommate you want to leave.
