Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Hello, my name is Jim and I am a qualified lawyer happy to help you today.
If you are also on the lease then you are liable to pay the rent with the other person. If you left then the other person would be liable for the whole rent, so they may pursue you (they could only sue you if they know where you live though, so if you do not give a forwarding address then they will not be able to pursue).
I hope this helps - if you can please accept the answer and give me a 5 star rating (the top right of your screen & then click “submit”), I can answer follow up Q&A's at no extra charge and Just Answer will credit me for helping you today.
I hope I have helped.
