roommate did not give notice before leaving
My current roommate and I have a lease that ends June 1st. We agreed to go on a month to month basis until August when my new roommate comes in and my current roommate starts her new contract somewhere else.
I asked her to sign a sublet agreement and she got "deeply offended". She now says that she will spend the two months at her parents to save cash.
I was given less then one months notice of these new plans and I found my new roommate based on her old plans.
The lease says that one must give 60 day notice before leaving in order to get the deposit back. The landlords will not let me sublet to anyone other than her.
So if I don't pay her half for June 1st, can I insist that the landlords take it from her deposit?
The only thing I have is emails indicating her plans to stay the summer and the fact that I found a roommate for Aug not June.
She sucks, but what can I do to cover my losses?!! I see July's rent as lost, but can I use the 60 day clause to cover June?
