My partner and I have just split up after we lived together for 6 months. I bought 3 settees in my name while we were together. They are on hire purchase. My partner asked if she could take one with her when she moved out. I said she could if she paid me either £15/month for next 3 years or £500 cash. She now has the setteebut refuses to pay. What are my rights? It seems like theft to me. She also now refuses to acknowledge any of my texts or email messages
Hi Claire. No, because we were living together when we made the arrangement. Surely she cant just take something from my house that belongs to me?
The sofa cost £599+£50 stain cover. It is on interest free credit for 42 months and 7 months have been paid so that leaves about £541 outstanding
Ok. I just wanted to make sure that I was right about her having to pay for something that she has taken. Are there any legal terms that I should quote?
Hi Claire One last question. I have sued her for the money as you suggested. Not heard anything back yet, but was wondering how I would stand if she brought the sofa back and left it in the front garden while I was at work? Personally, I wouldnt want it after she has had it for a month with her new man, but would I just have to accept it and cancel the debt?
