Legal Question

Asked on: 8/23/13, 8:11 pm

My disabled friend was living with his child and the baby mama moved in and he slept on the couch. He has a brain injury. This woman forged a signature to remove him from the lease and then sent that in to HUD. The leasing company accepted the signature without his presence, witnessed or notarized and took him off the lease without his knowledge. Then HUD used that document as proof of him not living there and he lost all of his benefits. The signature does not match the signature on his licence nor on the original lease. He is very ill and now has no medical because it was tied to the housing. I do not believe it is legal to accept a document that has not been authenticated in some way. I believe the leasing company is partially liable. am I correct?
