Hello, I am legal expert at Justanswer and I will be helping you with your question today.

This is a very good question and important as far as you are both concerned. Landlord if money is owed and a settlement cannot be reached, would like sue both of you for a money judgment for what is outstanding.

Once a judgment is obtained the landlord can pursue bank accounts, lien on real estate.

Consider not having large sums in bank accounts and also having a consumer protection lawyer/business lawyer negotiate with landlord a manageable settlement. is an excellent directory.
