Wow, you have no value to your signature, hmmmm? What about the landlord that trusted your good name? It's likley that you signed that agreement on your own free will. (If it was against your will, let me know.) I can't imagine you were raised locally, because here we value our word.
Call your landlord and see if you can work something out and "go and sin no more".
What if your room-mate has kids that are going through your belongings and stealing you rent money, the neighbors have caught the kids vandalizing their property and stealing from them also, need to get away from this room-mate.
