when I moved into my first apartment one of our roommates was 17

and we were told we could do 1 of 2 things... Have someone else

co-sign until she turned 18 then have her take their place on the

lease, or have her parents legally sign over guardianship of her to

us and she would be a dependent living with us until she turned 18

and we would then put her on the lease.

in the end, her mom co-signed and she took her place 3 months

later when she turned 18.
