There would only be an entry on the CR if the landlord won a creditor judgment by means of a civil lawsuit against the renter. Evictions and defaulted lease/rental agreements are not placed on CR. There are several agencies which gather information about such issues however, and supply the information to landlords, rental agencies etc. when inquiries are made.

Yes, you are an adult at 18. As long as you can afford the rent, have good credit history, and can sign the contract/lease.

If the lease restricts who can live in the apartment, as long as your son is listed as an occupant on the lease, he or she can continue to live in the apartment (unless the lease specifically states otherwise).

They have forever to collect. If they don't go through the courts, they send you to collections. If you ever want to rent again or possibly purchase a house in the future. You should pay them for the rest of your lease and damages. If you don't your credit will be ruined. Plus if future landlords know you skipped on your lease agreement they won't rent to you. If you don't tell them and they run your credit it will be on your report. It stays on there several years even after you paid it.

Can my 18 year old college student sign the lease to rent an apartment?

At the age of 18, your son can enter into any legally binding contract, including a lease for an apartment. As long as he meets the requirements of the managing company, which generally include an income requirement, credit and renter's history check. If he does not meet their requirements then, he will need a co-signer to get approved. An 18-year-old can sign the lease to rent an apartment because he or she is legally considered an adult. This is the case in most states. However, there are a few states where the minimum age to rent may be higher.

As long as you pay any early termination fees tied to your lease, and pay off your remaining payments, it will not affect your credit. However, like with any contract that involves money, if you 'run away' from the lease, it can be turned over to collection agencies, which could then harm your credit. Hope that helps!

What does a lease rent mean?

The terms lease or rent refer to paying for a piece of property (such as a house, apartment, or car) that someone else owns. The payments you make allow you to use that property for an allotted period of time. The term lease can also refer to the agreement made regarding how much will be payed for how long.

what happens if you want to move from where you just got an apt/?

The first thing would be to check the terms of your lease. It should clearly state how long the lease is for, what the penalties for getting out of the lease area and if you can sublet. Your options are pretty much just that. If you're lease ends soon or is month to month, give your notice and move when the lease is up. If not, check to see if there is a penalty to terminating your lease early. Sometimes it may be more beneficial to pay the penalty and get out of the lease than sticking it out. Your last option is subletting. This is when you sign another lease between someone who wants to stay in your apartment while it is still under your name. The policies for subletting vary by apartments so check with your landlord if you are unsure. Make sure that you have a formal agreement with the person staying in your apartment, because if they do something you are liable. You can always check with the landlord/apartment complex to see if there are other people wanting a unit. If so, they may let you out
