I understand. However, the leasing agent told me to get a signature on the contract anyway I could and I think he know the signature was invalid. The normal procedure was to sign the contract in the office but he had me take it home then return it back to him. So it is my argument that he knew. Does that matter?
Also, the contract stated that if the shop was significally damaged the landlord could choose to terminate the lease. It did not however give me the same option but several people have told me that if the contract contains such a catastrophic clause, it has to apply to both parties. Is that true? The vandelism left the shop unoperable and the landlord refused to do anything about security stating it was my problem.
i left feedback. please reply to my additional questions. i have to be in court tomorrow morning and need you advice on how to proceed. as i explained, our daughter had cancer last year and it left us fighting to pay our bills. we do not have an attorney and i will be in court all alone. is there anyway to get the judge to dismiss my husband as a defendant since he did not sign the contract. that way even if a judgment is issued it will be only against me>?
