I attended a summons in July and the case was sent to county court in Staines on 14th October 2015.
I went up that day but inadvertently got delyed so missed the proceedings by 1/2 an hour.
I received a 'General Form of Judgement or Order' yesterday stating that the Claimant recover against the defendent the sum of £9,744.54 and interest of £355 (total £10,079.54)
The Ist defendent is Mark Solomon - the tenant of the flat who defaulted on paying the rent.
2nd defendent - me who acted as his guarantor 5 years ago.
In my original written submission to the court I argued that Mark Solomon had defaulted on his tenancy in the first year and the agent allowed him to stay on. Furthermore the agent allowed Mark to accumalate a staggering 12 months arrears without taking action earlier. Surely the agent/landlord should be culpable for this inaction and complacency.
