Breaking a lease.
- My bestfriend, her boyfriend and I got an apartment together. Worse decision I ever made! We fight all the time and just don't get alont. Living together is ruining our friendship. They feel that because they are together and I am alone, they can gang up on me and try and get me out. Feel free, I want out! But I want to do so legally and without a huge penalty. Signed a year lease - it's been 2 and a half months.

- My baby's father and I got an apartment together and shared it for three years. On January 1 we agreed to separate. I moved my so- best friend in and she filled out the tenant application (my mistake). Its been nine months now and things are not looking good. I've put myself between a rock and a hard place. What can I do? I want to stay here but she doesn't look like she's going anywhere either.
