okay, here is my situation. my husband and i mutually decided to take a “separation” period after seven and a half years together. we did not legally file for a separation though.
i moved in with a guy that i had met at work and wanted to try a relationship with(have known him less than 6 months). unfortunately, our work place found out about our relationship and i was basically forced into quitting because of it(he is still employed there).
this guy i moved in with and i only have a 6 month lease where he is living. we have only been living there 3 weeks, and i just recently found out a whole bunch of negatives with him.
first off, he has an eviction on his record, several major dings on his credit report, and also several lawsuits/criminal records that occurred against him that i was NOT aware of at all. he failed to disclose any of this information before we moved in together, and i did not have the available resources to find this out about him until he recently gave my husband the OK to get his credit report.
my husband and my bank account has been closed because of a check this guy so willingly accepted from a “friend”, our credit cards our maxed out from buying him things such as cigarettes, food, and the gas needed to drive him around everywhere, he has a very bad temper, a family member is in jail for murder, and to top it all off, he lied from the very beginning to me about his whole entire past and what was wrong with him.
i tried getting in contact with our management company where this guy and i are on the lease at, and all she could basically say right now is that if i try to take myself off the lease, it would be a break lease, which i am already fully aware of..that is not including all the other fines and charges it takes to re-rent the apartment.
my problem though is that this guy also(among everything else!) lied on our application for the apartment that he has never been convicted and charged for an eviction, yet he definitely HAS…
1.) knowing all this information, is there any way i can actually get out of this lease without paying the break lease and all other charges?
2.) or, will i still be held liable even despite not knowing a single thing truthfully about this man, and have to pay a portion or all of the break lease?
3.) or, will he be fully responsible for all of it since i am currently un-employed due to losing my job where him and i both worked?
i am kicking myself massively in the rear, believe me, for the huge mistake i have made every single day. my husband and i have never been closer together as we lose everything we own because of this situation with this person who has leeched everything off of us. i am just basically distraught and very hurt and frustrated over the situation because this guy had lied about every single thing concerning himself. i was just wondering if anyone had any help/information on what i can do to better this problem, or even get out of it? my husband and i are considering going to legal aid to get some help because we do not want to file bankruptcy or consolidate our debt…to us that is losing the fight with this heartless person.
any help or ideas or even any information would be greatly appreciated anyone. thank you for reading this..it means alot to me, and thank you again.
