Wow that was fast! Can I claim as a third party to the small claims court (it's a 2k claim), or do I need to drag the property owner in. Basically, I have essentially paid the companies rent myself, although I was not on the lease agreement for their share. I assume as I paid this debt I am now chasing this debt myself? Would a judge say that as I paid this myself and that the property owner is paid up, that it's my personal problem?
