It sounds like you are both jointly and severally liable for all obligations of the lease. So what you need to do is work your bum off to get someone to take over your portion of the lease. You can leave but your roommate and the property can always come after you. In fact, if your roommate bails and is no where to be found, if the property knows where you are, you can be liable for everything. That’s what the “severally” part means. So find a roommate and don’t ever sign on anything “jointly and severally” liable unless you really mean it.
