Evany, I am sorry to hear about your situation. Unfortunately both you and your roommate are liable for the 12-month lease. You should look at the provisions of your lease to see what the penalty would be for early termination of the lease. Sometimes you may be charged only a month or two rent for early termination. However, you may be on the hook to pay the remaining months (and attorney's fees if necessary) for breaking the lease. Are you able to get another roommate to help with expenses?
