A: It would be helpful to have more information about the leases and the facts surrounding them. For example, how was it that you did you not know you were signing a lease if you in fact signed it? The facts surrounding the signing and whether a contract was formed may also be relevant. Was there some form of fraud or coercion? Was whatever you signed countersigned? It is a pretty factually-heavy scenario so having an attorney review would likely be productive.
