There were no bills in the tenants name, and bills and council tax were not included in the rent. ie were to be paid separately.
I do have emails from her showing that she paid bills and council tax separately, also historical emails from her showing how much council tax she has paid and how much she still owes, and asking me to email her a breakdown of bills she owes.
No I did not inform the council that I was no longer living here as this is my flat, I live here and have done all along, she rented an additional room, so all the bills have always been in my name.
I know both her and her boyfriend's work addresses and with a little looking can find her parents address also,
Thank you AJ,
Great advice not to chase her at place of work - not that I would, I have neither free time nor inclination to turn thug!
Does email count as valid contact?
She does have an income, and certainly spends a part of that on 'luxury' items, ie beyond basic food and shelter. She manages a tattoo studio and consistently spends a large amount of money on tattoos both for herself and her partner. I am not a tattood person, but I understand that the costs are are high.
However, we do not have a rental agreement, or of we did when she first moved in I have forgotten - I realise this is an error on my part, but can I still follow up considering written admission (and offers) to pay bills and council tax plus historic record of all payments of bills and council tax previously?
