It was from 2015 and has a lot of added interest and fees and they are saying they are going to garnish his wages. He doesn’t remember ever having this credit card and I am wondering if this is even legal or possible

It is not standard for the landlord to pay for carpet and painting when a tenant moves out.
However, whether you are responsible for a portion of the carpet replacement will depend on the condition of the carpet when you moved in, the condition of the carpet when you moved out, and the...View More
