Ok, what further information do you require?
Sorry, l have just seen your question at the bottom of your text.
Yes they are both tennants on the rental agreement with the housing association, and they are both on the mortgage agreement for the 30% stake in the flat.
1 The person whose name the bills are in is responsible forpaying them although within the relationship, each is obviously liable tocontribute.
2 He cannot have separate accounts created unless there are 2meters in the property which is practically impossible solution
3 he can only do that if she agrees and the mortgage companyagrees and he is able financially to take over the mortgage on his own and themortgage company are happy for that
4 that doesn't appear to be a question
5 that doesn't appear to be a question
6 if they cannot agree on a solution between them, and theproperty is sold and the proceeds divided. If there is not any equity, theneach is responsible for the shortfall. If they do not have the money to pay theshortfall, or are unwilling, they asked both struck with pain that the property
can I assist further?
On the question aboy the two bills gas and water. What l am asking is if say the water company ends that current account with the meter in the flat, so that debt is fixed and the liability for it can be worked out and paid.
Then is it possibel for a new account to be created on the same meter as only the step-son will be living there and he will be fully liable for this as he is the only occupant.
Is that possible
Yes that can be done if it isgoing from her name to his or from joint names to his but there may be a costinvolved.
It is easy enough for him toread the meter himself with his partner present and then simply apportion ithimself when the bill arrives, which is the only way of doing it if it is inhis name now and is remaining his name.
Does that answer thequestion?
In your time as a solicitor have you ever had to deal with a relationship that ends when a property is involved, do you have any examples of what can happen?
Quite a few. What type of happenings are you asking about?
