Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.
You should not sign anything you do not agree with factually.You are free to correct the facts and sign it.Feel free to cross out what is in error and initial it and sing the document.Again anything thats not true there is no need to agree to tit as it is written.If you don't agree here you breached the lease you can refuse the entire document.You have rights here , no need to agree to something you don't agree too.Since you know they will try to use this against you someday you may decide to refuse to sign the document here at all.
Since the matter has been concluded I see no reason for you to admit to anything, or if you do there you alter the facts so that they are true.Obviously you dispute the information in the statement here.You may consider telling them that you do not feel you breached the lease and have made good faith effort here to resolve it and leave it at that.The landlord may have to just let it go here.I don't see how they can cooerce you to sign anything that is factually untrue.
I appreciate the chance to help you today.Thanks again.
