My boyfriend, his "best" friend, and I moved into a house together last October (2005). The friend quit his job and quit paying bills (which we decided in a verbal agreement would all be split 3 ways) the second month that we were in the house. We still have until the end of september/beginning of october until the lease is up. I can't take it anymore. Last month I had to empty my savings account and borrow $200 from my mother to pay rent and bills. I can't afford groceries anymore, I can barely afford to put gas in my car to get to work everyday. Early last month, my sis and her boyfriend came over for dinner. Our roommate got drunk and went crazy. He tried fighting my boyfriend, my sisters boyfriend, and even took a swing at my sister. Then he started to take his aggression out on our belongings, punching our surround sound speakers (putting one of them through the wall) then went outside and punched the mailbox. We called the cops and he went to jail for 2 days. None of my friends or family will come over to my house now because they are afraid of him. And i don't blame them, I'm scared too. But most of all, we need him out so that we can get someone else in that will pay rent. He recently started a job but is spending his money on alcohol. We have spoken to the landlord but he can't take him off of the lease. And i really cannot afford this anymore...any suggestions?
