Can a rental application double for a lease?

Posted by Kara on February 15, 2000 at 10:47:53:

Background info:
Back in 6/1/99 my friend and her boyfriend moved into an apartment together in Albany, NY, 400+ Units, 6 month leasing period. They had a falling out a month later and she moved out. However, she had never signed the actual LEASE, she only filled out the rental application before she moved in. Now she has collection agencies calling her and demanding that she pay $985 because he supposedly “walked out of the lease early.” The credit agency told her that they cannot get a hold of her ex-boyfriend and she is resposible for the debt. She has no idea where he is and she hasn’t talked to him since July 1999. Any suggestions are welcome. And is she liable or is the credit agency just Bsing her? They say she signed a lease but she KNOWS she did not. Thanks in advance.
