Q: My daughter turns 18 in a couple of months. We found an apartment in the town where she’ll attend school, and I am offering to be on the lease as a guarantor. But the agent is having a fit because my daughter is a minor. Can you suggest any way around it? I even told the guy I’d pay for the place and not have her move in until she’s 18. –Cynthia K.
