Anderson, IN asked in Land Use & Zoning, Civil Litigation and Landlord - Tenant for Indiana

Q: If you sign a lease not knowing there is back rent can they sue and garage my wages.

I moved in with someone and he owned back rent. I did not know he was not paying the rent. I gave him my half of the rent and he did not pay it. We than got into an agrument and he told me to leave and have my grandma pick me up.

I have received a court order to have my wages attached to. Is there anything I can do?

I never saw a real lease just a paper saying I was to be added to the lease and that I would be responsible for it too. Not that there was back rent.

I moved and never got a paper saying there was a court date. They sent one finely to my grandparents house I revived after I moved back with them. The court date has already past. This was in Bloomington Indian. I now live in ANDERSON.

I contacted the Law office and they sent me the paper work. What do I do.
