Legal Question

Asked on: 7/16/13, 3:39 pm

Two years ago I leased an apartment with two other students. Each of us were named on the lease. However, one student was allowed to sign a 60 day notice of early termination without our knowledge. Myself and the other student never signed an early termination agreement, nor did we receive a copy of the one the property said was signed. We were asked to move and this resulted in fees. These fees have been sent to collections under one account and I have been unable to clear my credit because the other students have not paid their share of the fees. I recently went to the property manager to ask if these fees could be written off since I never signed an early termination agreement. The property manager says they have no way to access either agreement because of software changes and they are under new management. Should I be liable for these unpaid fees?
