read your lease very carefully: it probably says something like: you are 'jointly and severally liable for the rent'. This means the landlord can collect the whole rent from the tow of you or from just one of you.
Post the exact words of that clause AND To those asking questions: Experienced tenants and attorneys frequenting this message board
may be willing to help with their knowledge. In asking questions, please provide the following: your
city/location, if you are rent stabilized/controlled, coop/condo or under any form of regulation or
subsidy, lease status, units in building and when it was built. If Richard (firstname.lastname@example.org)
responds, ignore it.
(if NYS: you have the absolute right to get a roommate)
