I recently moved into a share already occupied by two roommates. One of these roommates is on the lease. I also signed the lease. After moving in, I discovered that the other roommate on the lease smokes and uses cocaine in the apartment's common areas. She did not mention these things before I signed the lease, and she is not willing to compromise in her behavior. Because of these things, my living situation has become intolerable. I don't want to breathe in secondhand smoke, and I don't feel safe having illegal drugs in the house. I complained to the landlord, but he doesn't seem willing to do anything.Do I have any legal right to kick out this roommate or break the lease myself? Does it make any difference that she is engaging in illegal behavior?
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
