I rent a house with my friend, and I moved out of the house about 3 months ago, and my friend did not pay the rent and the landlord filed 3 day notice to me and my friend. and the landlord also filed a unlawful detainer only to my name for non-payment of rent, but my friend still live in the property, and he answered my unlawful detainer by writing my name (no his signature, and does not look like my signature) on the document that filed with the court.
Later he told me he did not forged my signature, she hired a financial company to prepared the necessary legal documents to help him remain in the property for up to 3-4 months for a fee. The Contract
for the service he signed with the financial company stated the client give the financial company limited power of attorney
to prepare, sign and file any court documents. (she never see those documents that the financial company filed with the court),And on the contract he signed with financial company stated he is as a renter .
Now am I response for all the damage caused to the landlord.
Even he did not forge the signature, but she hired some one to do so, is he responsible for it, and did he committed a crime.
