Situation: A boyfriend girlfriend sign a lease for an apartment in Mississauga, Ontario. They break up. The girlfriend leaves. The landlord did a credit check on the girlfriend. So this _might_ hold her liable. Boyfriend is still shacked up in this house and landlord keeps harassing the girlfriend for rent. What can she do?

This is for a friend of mine, the girlfriend in the situation. The landlord doesn't listen to her when she says she's not there anymore and that he should kick out the boyfriend cuz he's not contributing to the rent. Instead, he calls her for the rent and says "you have to deal with your boyfriend" when BOTH their names are on the lease.
She wants out of the lease, but boyfriend doesn't sign it and move out. She also has 99% of the things in the house that SHE bought that she wants to take back.
Any help would be gladly appreciated. Thanks.
