Thank you for your question. I am happy to assist you.
Your daughter has two choices:
1. File a Chapter 7 bankruptcy and have the associated debts, such as the lease, discharged (erased); or
2. File suit against the previous owners for fraud and attempt to collect damages for her losses.
Before choosing between the two choices, your daughter can consider making an appointment with a civil litigation attorney to review the transaction in depth.
She will need to find out about how much litigation will cost her, what her chances are of winning the case and what her chances are of collecting any damages.
She can then make an informed decision on which choice is best for her.
I hope that the information which I provided was helpful to you.
Best wishes for a successful outcome. If you have additional questions, please do not hesitate to submit them to me directly.
