Did anyone ever point out there's a shift key on your keyboard?
A roommate leaving is not legal grounds to break a lease. If the friend
also was on the lease, he may still be partly responsible. If your son
can get another roommate or find someone to take over, that might be
a way out, or if the landlord allows it. In some areas if the tenant
moves out, the owner would need to show he was not able to re-rent
