My case is complicated.
On April 4th signed a group lease with 5 people ( including myself ) that was going from May 1st 2016 to May 1st 2017
Later on the April 19th one of our co-tenants sexually assaulted my girlfriend while he was on drugs. We called the Police on the night of the event and now the case is open and the Crown have agreed to start a trial against that person.
The problem is that when we took the house we all agreed to take possession on May 1st. The guy that assaulted my here never actually moved into his room or paid his share of the rent. Later me and my girlfriend decided to move out as well because she wasn’t feeling safe that he knew our address. We found 2 people to replace us and everything went fine.
Now that we’re out of the lease the landlord won’t refund my deposit because the guy that never came never paid his share of the rent and never tried to find a roommate.
My question is could I sue my landlord or my co-tenant in the Small Claims Court to have my deposit back?
