I was having problems paying rent and I moved out of my apartment with no notice. I was one month late on rent. Landlord kept my security deposit. Security deposit can be used as last months rent right? So I assume I am done paying rent. He wants to go to court for the money I "owe" him. Now, I never signed the lease or tenant at will papers. They were signed by a friends parent. My name was just at the top of the papers. Do I really need to get him this money or will I be okay in court? In my opinion I owe him nothing because I was never in writing. Please give me your best legal advice!
