My partner and I took out aloan together some years ago,

Customer Question

Hello my partner and I took out aloan together some years ago, we no longer live together and now have new partners. She got married to some one else. The loan was in both our names, I have received a judgement this morning in my name only.
I am not refusing to pay back the money, but only when the judgement is in both our names.
Is this legal for them to just put it in my name now that she has got married and changed her name.

I am afraid that it is. Joint loans are written on the basis that they are jointly and severably liable - this means that you are both jointly and separately liable - if they think one os better for the money than the other then they can choose to go after that person - there is nothing to stop you going after the ex yourself for your share. Happy to discuss. Please rate positive.
