i rent an apartment in san francisco - i'm interested in renting out part of my apartment to someone else while i'm away for 3 months - it seems very problematic, but i'd like to find a lawyer I could reasonably consult.

I am in a lease with my boyfriend we are both named on the

I am in a lease with my boyfriend we are both named on the lease. We have broken up and it has become a disaster. There are 15 months remaining on the lease. There are no early exit clauses (besides military and domestic violence)The landlord stated that we can forfeit the entire deposit and she would allow a sublet for the remainder.My boyfriend is only willing to leave if I pay him his half of the deposit, and be fully responsible for the subletter. I offered him the option of staying and finding a roommate. He is saying that he will only pay his half of the rent and will not cooperate with roommates.I need to determine options/consequences of next steps.

Signed a 12-month lease with my girlfriend in December 2016.

Signed a 12-month lease with my girlfriend in December 2016. We recently broke up and I would like to move out, however she refuses to terminate the lease, to sign the documents needed to remove me from the lease, and to get a roommate to replace me on the lease. Do I have any legal options to somehow get removed or to terminate the lease or am I stuck in this till she changes her mind?

I am renting a room in an apartment in NYC, the owner lives

I am renting a room in an apartment in NYC, the owner lives in the apartment too. She enters my room daily, opens the window, moves items in the room, etc. I have asked her not to and she doesn't respond. Says in her 'lease' that I signed that she can enter on occasion to change the air filter or let maintenance people in my room. I am very clean, early with rent and a working single professional woman. She also has in her lease that she wanted a renter who worked 9-5 out of the premises. I do, I work 10-6. She has sent scathing texts to myself and the other roommate which I have saved, when I have left the apartment at 9:07- she says I am late in leaving, that we need to be out at 9:00am on the dot or we are violating the contract and that she can force us to leave. She has entered both of our rooms on days that we have both been sick and yelled in person and numerous texts of this 'violation'. - Myself nor the other roommate is in a financial position to leave. I only want for this person to stay out of my room and leave me alone. She threatens with her attorney but I have not been served any eviction and from my research we as renters are not in any violation. She has a security deposit of one months rent and my last months rent. I would like to ensure if I need to move before my lease ends, which is May 31st, I can get this back, her behavior is touch and go. Please advise!
