Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Unfortunately, in order to let you out of the lease, BOTH tenants on the lease need to agree along with the landlord to release you. So, if your roommate refuses to sign, then your only way out of the lease would be filing a civil suit against your roommate for breach of lease for forcing you to leave and you can get the court to order removal of the lease.
