So if you haven’t heard the situation already, last academic year I moved in with 4 other people. Long story short one of them ‘left’ the house and left a bunch of her stuff inside leaving it there for 6 months. During this time her rent was not paid so when the contract ended there was an outstanding £1200 that needed to be paid, £1000 was covered by eating all of our deposits and that left £50 to be paid each. We would have to get all of it back through small claims court which is more trouble than its worth.
And today just to bring this entire debockle into the foreground a letter jumps under my door from the letting agency saying that we owe another £400 between us in repairs and cleaning. I swear at all possible opportunities were I could help this girl I will make it my business to incline her to solve my problems (being out of pocket) before I solve hers.
She owes a collective £1300 plus bills. That will make my share to be around £400, that money could be spent already on my World Scout Jamboree fees which I only have 3 months left to pay in part of full.
“Revenge is a dish best served cold”
If anyone has any ideas besides making sure she receives a summons to small claims court on how I can get what I’m owed then please jot your ideas down for me.
Moral of the story is, don’t get involved in a group contract with people you don’t know.
