Hi hope someone can help,

 

Me and 2 other friends shared a house from December 2014 to April 2015.

 

 

Me and 1 friend said we would pay the rent on the house whilst the other friend paid for all the bills, which was a lot cheaper than the rent.

 

I had a letter sent through to my current address from the council saying there was a Liability order granted from the magistrate in July 2015 ( I have not revived any correspondence from the council up until now).

 

 

It also states on the letter that they had an attachment of earning order from the friend, which means they would of taken money from the salary but my friend got sacked from the job and no money has been taken.

 

 

the whole amount is still payable.

 

I requested a statement of account from the council and all 3 names are on the account.

 

Question is who is liable, all 3?

If you were all joint tenants and you lived together then all 3 of you are jointly liable for the council tax charge.

you are jointly and severally liable so they can go ater all of you or just one of you if they wish. You will have to argue how to share the payment with the others but you are stuck with the order so you have to pay it.

If the OP had something in writing or a witness to the agreement on how they should have been spilling the rent / bills could OP pay the LO and then seek payment through a small claims court afterwards from the party that SHOULD have been responsible for the council tax payments?

Yes - it would fall in to a contractual agreement between them which could be taken to the small claims court to attempt to recover the monies.
