Please let me know if I have answered your question
Both of those will take months. That means I will have to move out in the meantime. Since I pay all of the rent and utilities with the accounts in my name only can I cancel them without legal problems. I will need the money for rent and utilities for myself.
Unfortunately it would be against the law for you to cancel the utilities. It would be considered to be a constructive eviction.
