How many people rented the house directly from the landlord and pay rent directly to the landlord? Did the landlord rent directly to some people and let those people bring in roommates?

The drug issue, especially dealing, might be difficult to prove. If the suspected drug user/dealer is only a roommate and not a direct tenant of the landlord, I see no basis for you to get anything back from the landlord.

: I lived in house with 3 other people. I recently found that one guy was using
: drugs (Although I don't have proof, I could smell it) and I was told that he
: also deals drugs. I talked to the landlord but she wouldn't do anything
: about it. So I moved out immediately and have to stay in a motel until I find
: a decent place.
: Am I entitled to the one month security deposit and half month rent I paid?

: Thanks,

: Joe
