  1. think we're talking about £200. What's a TDS scheme? How does that protect me? Remember I've got my deposit back... the only thing that I'm out on is the fact that the Utility bill has been paid for (which was in the landlords name) and it was me that 100% of it.... My housemate has already said he's pretty sure he's already given me the cash for it. So I'm raging. Can I sue him? I can't see any legal ties my housemate has to this bill because his name isn't on it and he can just say he's paid me cash? Isn't it more the landlords fault for giving him his deposit back before the bills were sett
  2. well we never signed anything to take on responsibility of any bills, from what I can remember the bills were in the landlords name, we were only there for 6 months because I was sick of his late payments etc. There's nothing in writing to say we'll split anything, just an assumption based on us being "mates" really. I think all it says in the lease is that the bills must be up to date and settled before the deposits will be returned.... so assuming we've both been given our deposits back, and the actual bill itself has been paid (therefore the debt is purely him owing me), there's not a thing
  3. Hi I have recently moved out of the old flat thanks to having a bit of an arse for a flat-mate. He's moved out too. We've got our deposits back but there was a utilities bill that I ended up having to pay all on my own because he managed to talk the landlord into giving him his side of the deposit back before the bills were settled. I'm pretty sure that he's not going to voluntarily give me his side of the bill, and I've had to pay it to get my deposit back. Anything I can do or is it a lost cause?
  4. Good evening all Me and my partner have recently split (we live in Edinburgh), and she has decided to move out of our leased house. She has agreed to continue paying her side of the rent (as she has signed the tenancy agreement up until the end of July. I was wondering if she is also legally bound to pay council tax for the property up to the end of the tenancy? I don't wish to be an arse, this has been an amicable split - I just simply cannot afford the whole sum off my own back (even with the 25% discount for sole occupancy), so was wondering what the right course of action is.
