Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.
Is your roommate someone who is on the lease with you, or do you have a separate sublease/roommate agreement with them?
So that means that she is correct with regards ***** ***** because only the landlord can evict for nonpayment of rent when the roommate is on the main lease. However, you can sue them in small claims court for their share of the rent.
You are welcome. Going forward with new roommates, you might want to think about creating a separate roommate agreement which gives you rights to evict under certain circumstances.
