Customer Question

My brother was my co-signer for an apt. lease that was for 1 year. June 2013 to June 2914. So the lease had expired and I stayed on month to month without creating a new lease. There was problems within the buildings with construction and I was away from the apt for 5 months. The landlord is trying to make my brother responsible for 4100. in rent when the original lease had expired June 2014, It is a year later, 2yrs later after the original lease. Is my brother, the co-signer for the first lease still responsible for repayment of this rent .... ?

What does the lease say in terms of how long he is the co-signor for, if anything?Do you agree this money is owed but you just don't want the landlord to go after you?

the rent was owed but the lease was expired and I stayed month to month with no lease. Can they still make my co-signer responsible for this unpaid rent out and beyond the 1 year lease.

I haven't received the answer to my questions. I know you were on an month-to-month tenancy but I still need to know what the original lease said about how long he is the co-signor for.

I'M SORRY, I believe there is a duplicate lease is here somewhere. I will have to view one of their leases. The original lease is packed and so we have to view the original..... I don't have the info you require.
