A few years ago 2 other friends and I signed a 1 year lease on a house. When it was time to move out, we were young and irresponsible and left the house a mess and charged us with a fee of $3,183. We didn't pay and it went to collections and have been effecting our credit. I called the collections company and made an agreement of paying my portion which is $,1061 (per person). I spoke with the debt collections company and they said the only way to get this off my credit is to pay it all completely. Now my portion is paid off, however however the other girls refuse to pay their portion. I wanted to know if there is any way I or the debt collections company can serve them legal papers and they would be obligated to pay their portion? If so how? Or is there a better option?
