    Default Right to Security Deposit and Last Month's Rent

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

    I was in a relationship with a woman and during the course of the relationship we signed a 24 month lease to live in a townhouse. Seven months into the lease, the relationship has ended and the person has requested that I vacate the premise. I have a couple of questions:

    1. Can the landlord refuse to remove me from the lease?
    2. Do I have a right to collect my half of the security deposit and last month's rent from the roommate since she requested I leave.
    3. If I leave without the landlord releasing me am I still liable for the lease seeing as my roommate requested that I leave.
