I was living in a place in 2001-2004 and on the joint contract that I was on one of the people did not pay their rent-this accrued to £900 in the Year 2001-I paid all my rent and have proof of it. I also tried to tkae the tenant to court for non payment of rent and for all the bills however did not get any response.

However I received a letter to my last house from a debt collection agency saying I owed the full amount of £900 in December 2007. I have sinced moved in January but am really concerend about this and that they may try to take me to court, although they don't have my current address.

Could anyone help me?

Hi shehasredhair. Welcome to CAG. Do you still have a copy of the contract you had with the landlord?


Are you still friends with the other person who shared with you? If not, do you know where this person lived now? You could always, as you have proof of payment of your share of the rent, tell the debt collection to go after your ex-housemate.


But, if there is a clause in your contract that states that non-payment of one party gets transfered to the other party I am unsure what you can do. Maybe someone else can advise on that.
