My question involves a roommate in the State of: Virginia
My roommate and I used to be friends, however recently our relationship has taken a turn for the worse. We are no longer speaking and things at home are very hostile. I have tried talking to her about this, however nothing is making the situation better. Take in to account that we are both working adults (both 27) so we should be able to deal with this in a civil manner.
I would like to find someone to take over my part of the lease. I have received permission from our leasing office to do this. We simply have to bring the person in and have them apply and then sign a new lease. Which my roommate also has to sign. She has stated she will not sign a lease with a new roommate and also does not want to move out.
What are my legal options here? Can she truly keep me from finding a replacement?
