  • Collecting Debt 4 Lease on Minor not on Contract

    In the Texas/or any State for that matter, is it not illegal to allow a 17 yr. old to sign lease agreement on apartment if their not emancipated? I thought you had to be 18. Any input would really help, I'm asking this because I know I need to Dispute this debt on my credit report I recently discovered. These apartments my ex-boyfriend& I lived in back in 2006 are trying to collect $6,000 from me when I have proof that its my ex's name on the lease I had signed as an occupant only! I even still have the eviction papers they left on the door addressed to him. So should I write a letter to them and tell them my age at the time and a copy of those letters, Or anything else?

    No. Do not communicate with the collection agency.

    Consult with an attorney who specializes in Consumer Protection.
