Hi and welcome to JA. I am Ray and will be the expert helping you today.
He is liable here for the lease only if he signed it.You did not sign the guarantee so no liability to you in this situation.He may want to check into subleasing the property and otherwise resolve the lease.
If he signed a lease he is likely liable so subleasing or other resolution may help him resolve the lease.If he subleases he usually remains liable for a default until the end of the lease.
They cannot hold you liable here if you did not sign the lease or otherwise guarantee payment.He may be able to raise these issues to try and get them to terminate the lease and release him or at least allow a sublease to someone else if he can find a subleaser.
It certainly is an issue to raise with the landlord in seeking to resolve the lease and be released.It appears to be an incomplete lease.This does keep you from being liable in this matter.
I appreciate the chance to help you today.Please let me know if you have more follow up.Thanks again.
Good reference here , there are places that may be able to help him...
