Me and boyfriend have been looking for an apartment for a long time. I have no credit , he has good credit. I have tried to get credit many ways and am so discouraged. But this should help . Thing is we got this apartment because our friends are moving . Our friend and my boyfriend worked at the same place until our friend got fired. They can no longer afford to live here and have family and better oppurtunities where they are moving. We took over there lease. We did not make enough to qualify to live there ( 3 times the rent amount which i think is ridicoulous) We have another roomate moving in with us soon but he is not on the lease yet. Our friend took theirs names off the lease and put ours on there. I was honest on our application of how much we made and the lady told us to lie to her ? So my friend lied and said me and boyfriend made way more then we do. We can pay rent . Im just nervous later on after our friends lease that we took over is up they will kick us out or persue charges. Any advice >?

RE: Nervous

1. Do you have a signed contract with the apartment landlord or management? Usually they verify income.
2. Are you allowed to have three unrelated people in the apartment?

RE: Nervous

If your signature isn't attached to fraudulent information, what someone else wrote shouldn't be your concern. As long as you're making the rent payments in full and on time, your landlord most likely won't care. And, once you're there, and proving that you're a good tenant, again, the landlord likely won't care. Re-upping a lease isn't like signing up for it to begin with. If your signature, however, is attached to a fraudulent claim, and you wind up having issues with the landlord, then you definitely have a chance of the problems you're afraid of...

RE: Nervous

I guess this might be a problem to you later on if not now. So it's much better to look for the other option as soon as you can , because some time this can create a mess to both the parties.
