Hello Steve my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Does it say they are joint and severally liable in the contract please?Alex
Ok - its bad news then I am afraid. Sadly it is legally binding because it says they are joint and severally liable. All those that have signed it are liable, those have not signed it are not. Further, if you are guarantor then you are responsible not just for your daughters share but the entire rent, unless the agreement says otherwise.
Its very unusual for you to be responsible for just a portion.
I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?Alex
Ah thats good. it would be her share only, no more.
Does that clarify?Alex
Sadly it does not invalidate the whole agreement, just binds those who have signed.
I am sorry, but does that help?Alex
