    Default Roommate Moving

    My question involves a roommate in the State of: Texas

    My roommate has signed another lease, and we have only fulfilled 5 of the 13 months of our lease, we both signed the lease. she says she is going to pay both of the apartments leases but i don't think that she will be able to come up with the money. and i dont have any friends that need places to live at this time.

    If she moves out and doesnt pay will i have to pay? will that be on my credit? can i do anything so it wont be on my credit? can i get any of that money from her threw court?

    Thank you in advance for any answers.

    Default Re: Roommate Moving

    If she defaults on the lease, unless you've ben released from your landlord, you should expect that your landlord will pursue you for payment. You can then try suing your ex-roommate in small claims court, but if she doesn't have money... well, she can't pay what she doesn't have.
