I must have a ranting moment.....
I think I may have to kill DH's step-dad and if his mom wasn't already in jail she would be killed as well. We owned a trailer (yay for trailer trash! LOL) before we bought our house. Instead of selling it we allowed my MIL and her husband to move in and buy it on a land contract. When they moved in they installed new carpet. We found out today they must have bought the carpet on some sort of payment plan because my husband and I are now being contacted by the carpet place saying we owe them the $650 balance as it hasn't been paid. It's showing up as a negative on my husbands credit report. There is no way in you know where that I am going to be responsible for THEIR carpet. We DID NOT co-sign anything so I have no idea how my husbands name is on this account. He is going tomorrow to meet with the carpet place as he wants to see the paperwork. I swear on it all that if they've fradulently put his name on their account they will be prosecuted. I don't think the carpet place can hold us liable simply because our names are on the property/house. We have a signed and notorized contract from my MIL and her husband stating they are buying the property/house, they are responsible for all up keep/repairs, taxes, insurance, etc. So the only way (IMO) that DHs name is involved is if they had him down as some sort of co-signer or whatever you want to call it. I am so mad I could spit nails!!!!
I think that falls under some sort of identity theft now.
I'm so sorry Jessicah. Good luck to your dh tomorrow. It sounds like this should be able to be fixed.

NOT OKAY! I don't blame you for being angry!! Can you kick them out & get the place sold?

Wow, that's awful! KUP!
Did they buy the trailer, and then do a land contract on the land, or are both the trailer and land in the contract? You may very well be liable because technically, in a land contract, you are still hold the risk. Try to play nice with the carpet folks. Otherwise, get a lawyer in your state. You could very well be held liable for this this, since you still own the property.....
