I signed a lease in my brothers name for 11 months. After the lease ended he went on a month to month contract with the complex. No one renewed the lease. Well he was arrested and had to return to Alabama for his probation. So he moved out of the apartment. Well I received a letter in the mail saying that I owe over two thousand dollars because he broke the lease and it was in my name. How can this be? Can they renew the lease without me signing it? Do I have to pay them? They are threatening to send it to the credit bureau. How can I fight this? What should I do?
