Joint rental collection

In 2010 I jointly put my name, mom and brother on apt rental. I helped out because mom just had her foreclose and my credit was somewhat ok. Fast forward a year later they want to moved out to a better location apt. In their rental it says they have to give 30 days written notice which is normal and they also sent my mom a reminder letter. My mom is prettty old and English is not her first langguage, even though I told her to make sure to turn in the notice letter she of course didn't. She went to the leasing office to pay her rent and told a lady that was there she doesn't want to renew her lease and asked if she needs to sign anything else, this lady said no that she will make a note of it. Fast forward a couple of months later all 3 of us received a collection letter for the full amount of rent. I called the apt office and they just didn't want to listen and keep saying you owe the full month rent. We of course don't feel it's right, specially because my mom, brother and husband worked really hard to clean the apt, it was spotless. I told them I agreed she was somewhat at fault, but they were too since the lady told her she was fine and no written aggreement needed, they in turn told me they have high turnover for employees but they were not at fault because it was stated in the contract.

 

Now I have this collection for $789 from IQ Data Intl and I want to just get rid of it too. I did tried talk to them early this year trying to pay it off less than it was. They said I can pay $450 to remove my name only, but I want all 3 of our names off. Because this is my biggest baddies and I can pay this off in full can I ask them in my PDF for all 3 of our names off? Should I send 3 diff PDF for mom, me and brother? Or ask in one letter?

 

Does anybody has any experience with this CA they can share with me?

Re: Joint rental collection

Actually if you send a PFD to have all references of this account deleted from the CRAs, it should cover all 3 of you.  Get that in writing first.
