Legal Question

Asked on: 4/10/13, 5:48 am

I'm in a roommate situation. It's not healthy for us to continue living together especially with kids involved. Our lease is due to end July 6, with no prorated rate for July. I would like to leave once my kids get out of school may 31. If I leave may 31, shouldn't my security deposit which is 1/2 of the rent cover the month of June? I was informed by the leasing agent that I I want to leave the end of may, that I have to pay for June, lose my security deposit & another lease has to be drawn up for my roommate to agree to remove me from the lease. If that's the case & I don't owe anything because my portion of the lease has been for filled, then why would I lose my security deposit?
