Thank you for the information and your question. Just to clarify, I have not previously posted on your question. The prior question and answer was from an automated system the Site has created, but it is not always that helpful and obtaining the information that the Experts actually need to assist our customers. Thus I will need some additional questions answered in order to help you.

Can you clarify if you are a tenant? If so, is your roommate on the lease or have you created a sublease with them and was your landlord a party to the lease? Have you spoken to your landlord about the roommate issue and what have they said?
