co-signer/guarantor responsibilities

Posted by elvine topac on April 08, 1998 at 20:32:58:

Help! I am desperate. I have to make a decision by end of day tomorrow.
I am late on my rent for the last 2 months. I tried to make a partial
payment and it was refused. I was told that I either pay $2500 (2 months)
by April 9th, or I will be taken to Housing Court. I have my reasons
for being late on the rent and I am not afraid of being sued by these
people. It is however a management company, therefore, they are very
aggressive & pushy. However, my problem is this: I have a cosigner on the
lease. They wouldn't accept me as the sole person, because it was my first
apartment in New York City. I need an answer ASAP, in order to make a decision
so I can choose which path I should take. I do not want my cosigner to be
disturbed, hassled, basically contacted or be aware of the situation for
personal reasons that are extremely important & delicate. On that note, my questions are:

1.Can they make my guarantor/cosigner responsible for payment?
2.If they sue me, for eviction, does this mean he is getting sued as well?
3. Can they contact him independently?
4. Would this cause any legal problems for him?
5. Would this effect his credit and or standing?
Please help as soon as possible. I cannot afford an attorney and any advice
you may give would be immensely appreciated. Thanks very much.
