    Steven’s Answer

    It appears that the landlord is way out of line. There are a couple ways you can go. That's why you need to see an attorney.

    Steven’s Answer

    Probably. I lawyer will have to tell you after seeing your lease and hearing your story. You will have to go to small claims court.

  • A friend cosigned on my lease. she was no longer on my lease renewals. Is she still liable?

    I moved out and still owe 1000 but they say it will affect her even though Im paying. Is this true?

    Steven’s Answer

    If the renewals were written, have only your signature, and do not have any carryover language relating to her, I think there is a good chance she is not liable, except for things that happened during the initial term. But you need for a lawyer to review the paperwork.

    Steven’s Answer

    If, however, the claim is about 900, you will have to take it to small claims court where lawyers are not allowed. It still would be worthwhile to consult with a landlord-tenant lawyer before filing.

    Steven’s Answer

    This is a bailment/conversion question. You may very well have a case, unless you signed something unfortunate. Get to a lawyer with all your paperwork.

    Take your paperwork to a litigator. There will be many questions. Don't wait since delay may be interpreted as acceptance.
