I have consigned a lease and the tenant is prematurely

Customer Question
I have consigned a...

I have consigned a lease and the tenant is prematurely terminating the one year lease. What are my liabilities, can I sue her or her husband from who she has separated and if I do not pay the rental company what can they do to me?

Lawyer's Assistant: It can cost anywhere from $10 to $100, depending on the type of issue and how much of the Lawyer's time your question is expected to take (how complex and lengthy an answer you require).

Just did

Lawyer's Assistant: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

MD

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

No not yet but she can not afford the rent at this time

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
