My question involves a roommate in the State of: Indiana
I currently live in a house with a former friend and her boyfriend. All three of our names are on the lease. Last week a friend who had been staying (and paying rent) for a few months was attacked by the female roommate leaving her with a black eye, fat lip and a huge bruise on her arm. The female roommate has a reputation for starting fights and I have had to call the ambulance and police for her a couple times.
I no longer feel safe in my house and have found another place to stay until I graduate from college. I understand that it would be hard for me to break my lease but am I still responsible for the utilities? My name is not on any of them.
Also, I need to move my stuff out of the house but fear something might happen to me if I go. Is there anyway I could get police assistance while I move my stuff out?
Also, both of my roommates are huge pot heads and there is drug paraphernalia all over the downstairs of my house which is where they live. I do not do any drugs so if I was tested I would be clean but if I was able to get a police officer to see the paraphernalia could I get my roommates in trouble and possibly make this process smoother? My roommates also stole Vicodin from me (from when I got my wisdom teeth out) but I think that would be harder to prove.
Thanks for any help you can provide!
