  1. A friend shared a house with a man for a few months. She was not in a relationship with him nor was he a friend. She just happened to live in the same house. She left the house about 4 months ago and apparently the man she shared with is now in prison. She is being pursued by the council for this man's unpaid council tax. I understand that the council is allowed to pursue fellow tenants, but is this still the case when the council knows where the other person is living (ie prison?) Is there any way that she can avoid having to pay someone e
  2. I had a flat in Edinburgh with two flatmates, those two moved out and I gave a lease to a girl so she could sign up to the lease and move in. I gave her a set of keys as I was going away for a couple of weeks. I came back to the girl moved in, was paying the rent and bills into my account and so I assumed everything was fine. It was then in the last month that I found out she had not signed up to the lease and was therefore living illegally in my flat for the past 6 months. She then went on to move out without paying the remainder of what I was owed and so I have been left out of pocket.
  3. We've had a new young flatmate for the last two months. She spends the whole day sitting in the common room (tv room + kitchen) dry-coughing and spreading potential germs around, not to mention the annoyance of somebody coughing in your face. She doesn't appear to work or study and is not getting any better. She's from the old Europe block and is not registered to a GP and no medical insurance. In other words she can't be bothered with seeking assistance and clearly not in a condition to take care of herself. As she is not registered and she doesn't want to, we have volunteered to es
  4. My wife and I moved out of our previous house early last month. My wife then cancelled the tv license, after trying to transfer the account into the new flatmate's name. The new flatmate had been away travelling, and hadn't had time to ring them alongside my wife to transfer the account over into the new name. The flatmate suggested that my wife just ring them and cancel the account, and that she would get a new account later. My wife did that, and then told the new flatmate, who incidentally never responded to say she'd understood. Anyway a month later and the flatmates ar
  5. I claim JSA, HB and CTB. I have not told my flatmate of my unemployed status and have been claiming for 18months. I don't work or anything and to be honest it is none of his business. He works full time and I have disclosed him on all benefits forms. Today out of the blue he got a phone call on his moble from the local JPC. Fortunately he just put the phone down as he did not think it was for him. I thought data protection laws would prevent them from calling about my claim? On top of that I have never given his contact details to the JCP. It is probably just the case of a
  6. Hi everyone, I was a tenant at a flat with two other people, it started on the 23rd September 2011 and we moved out on 23rd July 2012, the agreement was for a year but we had a clause which allowed us to leave at 10 months. We all paid a deposit separately and it was protected. I received a text from the LA on the 26th July saying that my deposit refund had been processed and it should clear within 5-7 days, I texted one of my flatmates asking if he'd received his deposit but got no reply, my bank have been very slow with clearing payments before so I allowed some more time (in hind
