I was on the lease with a boyfriend and a co-signer (his relative). I moved out, he stayed. He told me he was paying the rent. Turns out he was not. The landlord sued me, the ex and the co-signer. The co-signer and the ex signed a settlement together in which the ex admitted to a judgment being entered against him and all charges against the co-signer were dismissed (for some reason). Of course, the ex never paid a dime after he signed the settlement and now my old landlord wants to get a judgment against me as well. If he is able to get a judgment against me, he will have two judgments for the same debt. What happens after that? Do both judgments go on our separate credit reports or does the landlord have to pick one judgment to pursue?If the landlord is able to collect from both judgments until the entire debt is satisfied, how would I know he is not over-collecting? His attorney is extremely disorganized and I do not speak to the other co-tenant, so I would never find out if he started making payments.
