If I want to end my lease, will my roommate or family members be kicked out of the residence?

If your roommate or other family members are also listed as tenants on the lease, their tenancy will continue even if you end yours. Also, even if the abuser is removed from the home, s/he can still be held responsible by the landlord for the rent and for any damage caused to the residence.1
