     Yes, your roommate is still responsible to pay his share of the rent, but it can be very difficult to force him to pay the rent. You and your roommates are all bound jointly to pay the rent to your landlord, and so if a roommate leaves, the rent must still be paid in full. The landlord can evict you if the rent is not paid in full, regardless of your roommate moving.

    It is a good idea to have a roommate agreement with all of the people you are living with. The agreement should specify how rent will be paid, and for how long each roommate remains responsible to pay their share of the rent.
