Hi, thanks very much for your help. I am praying that now we know where she stands the threat should be enough. However if this is not the case i guess going to court and so on will be the only way to solve it. I am unsure as to how it would work with the friend being sued as she is infact claiming benifits and now i understand the reason this money was needed is she was in arears for not notifying the council she had a partner staying in the house. this meant her rent should have went up and was back dated.
If she was to sue how do you think the repayments would work? do you think they would feel sorry for her and only make her pay a low amount monthly?
