Hello. My name is Alex.Thank you for your question.I will be happy to provide you with information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
When was this used vehicle sold?
Was the vehicle sold with any type of written warranty?
I cannot comment on your specific case, but generally, the landlord / management would send the debt to the collection agency and the debt would be reported to the credit bureaus and in most cases a lawsuit would be filed and a judgment obtained against both tenants.
Once a court judgment is obtained, the judgment creditor will be able to enforce judgment and to collect on the judgment by seizing debtors' property, garnishing wages, placing liens on any real estate property owned by the judgment debtors, etc...
So generally, it is better to come to some type of an agreement with the landlord and in some cases the landlord might agree to a reduced early termination cancellation fee amount.
I wish you the best of luck!
