Court named me co-tenant after roommate relocates

Posted by Passion on October 02, 1997 at 18:09:07:

My roommate of seven years relocated and did not tell me rent had not been paid.
Landlord took me to court for non-payment of rent. I retained an attorney, rent was paid
and I was named co-tenant by the court. However, landlord took me back to court in July
for non-payment of rent after request was made that he apply duplicate rent payment for
the month of January. At this second court hearing my co-tenant status was defined as
having same right as primary tenant and a court stipulation was written with my agreeing to pay the rent until proofe
was received from bank. The new rent was agreed upon and landlord agreed to provide me with a
renewal lease. This was agreed upon in July. Also, my attorney wrote a letter to my landlord providing proof of
duplicate payment and requesting that the duplicate payment be applied to September 1997's rent.
Again, my renewal lease was requested by my attorney. I complied with the court's instruction to
provide landlord with application of occupancy and paid the $15 fee for the credit check.
It is now October, and the landlord has to date refused to provide the renewal lease. I can no longer
afford an attorney. Please help, what do I do?
me with a renewal lease despite having signed the court stipulation agreeing to do so.
LEASE EXPIRES OCTOBER 31, 1997. What do I do?
