If I get my lease terminated, how will this affect my roommates?
If there are multiple roommates on a lease agreement and one of them requests early termination, the entire lease will end and all roommates are expected to move out.1 If the abuser who committed the sexual assault is one of the roommates named on the lease, the landlord may also immediately evict that abuser by presenting documentation of the abuse to the court.1
