how much will advice cost me please as i am on a benefit My husband has left me and he is paying the mortgage but I only have a benefit of £432.00 a month to cover the bills I took in a lodger to help She paid £400 deposit and £400 rent in advance with £100 rent to be paid each week we filled in and signed a tennant agreement. she was here for one month and 1 week the month was already paid for so did not get anymore untill october However I later decovered that she was a alcohic more than once i had tho pick her up of the floor I informed her sister and in the end i told her sister to collect her as i could not take anymore now i just get texts saying i have to pay her £900.00 and threatening to take me to court. I have photo evidence of the wine spillage on the matress and the carpet also damage in the bathroom next to the toilet where she has cracked a panel which is new and i may have to replace the whole side what do i do
She paid £400 deposit and £400 1 months rent in advance, she moved in in september, and she did not pay any rent until october when she paid me £100 for a week. on th thursday of the week i called her sister to come and get her.
I know i did not give her a months notice, but I did not know that she was a alcholic i gave her chances and she promised me she would not do it again but she did.
I have paid her £200. which is half of her deposit and £50 of the weeks rent she paid.
that has made me feel better about the situation
