So I'm trying to find a sublease for my rented apartment that I foolishly signed the lease for last year in autumn that no longer fits my situation. The situation is that the two other remaining roomates have their heads stuck so far up their asses that I can't stand to live with them. So my question is: Is there anyway I can get out of the lease? I've found people interested in MY ROOM, which is significantly larger than other rooms in the house. Then today, my roomates drop this bomb: "We're going to give your room to one of our friends. You have to show her(the new girl) a smaller room. I think that's bull because I'm far less likely to convince someone to pay the amount of rent for that room in the time frame I have. They seem to think because their friends agreed to sign the lease earlier that they get higher priority than my potential subleaser. Could I say they are disrupting my ability to find a sublease and get out that way? Also, the lease is split in such a way that 3 people are on the "upstairs lease" and 3 people are on the "downstairs lease". I'm on the upstairs lease. They seem to think this means someone shouldn't have any right to a room downstairs when there are 4 rooms upstairs and 2 downstairs. Could this potentially get me out of the lease if I pursued it? Excuse me if the post makes no sense, I'm extremely furious with them right now. Can't wait to move .
