Hi, Thank you for your question and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I will assist you. If the bill is in your name you are still liable for it, I would recommend that you pay the bill so the utilities companies do not sue you and damage your credit score. You can then sue the landlord to recover the money that he has taken. How much is the bill? Give the landlord a 7 day warning to pay, if he still does not pay you can commence a claim here -

Hi Thank you . Fortunately you were not injured by this, but if you want to hold the landlord accountable I would recommend you report him to the local council. Is the landlord expecting you to sue him? Was the deposit placed in a secure bond? Was this an Assured shorthold tenancy?
Hi, Thank you. I think you should send him a warning, say you have had to pay the bill yourself, if he does not now return the money within 7 days you will commence proceedings against him. If he wont voluntarily pay you will have no option but to sue him. Kind regards AJ
