Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return You do not need to wait here as you will get an email when I reply.
If you tell the truth the Landlord could complain to the Police.
If this is the case then your son is guilty of fraud by false representation
He is likely to be prosecuted.
So it is a matter for you.
You can either pay the arrears and agree you are guarantor or inform the Landlord it is not you, in which case he/she may go to the Police.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
