Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
Have you asked the Landlord if they have received any sums from your ex business partner at this stage?
Yes they are. I would ask. They must tell you if any payments have been received from your ex as they can't claim twice and profit from this so to speak
But they are under no legal obligation to pursue your ex, as you are joint and severally liable.
But they must tell you if payments have been received, how much and when
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Yes you can. He owes you half.
Does that clarify?
You can't sadly. There is no public search facility for that.
I am sorry. Can I clarify anything else?
If this answers your question could I invite you to rate my answer before you go today, otherwise the site doesn’t pay me for the time spent with you. Thanks in advance!
