Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Dunstable town fc has received an outstanding water bill of £7,600 for the period of May 2010 to Sept 2011, as you can appreciate people come and go in a football club and no one has dealt with the bill. i was and still am involved at the club and i have now received a letter from a debt collection company at my home address asking for the money, the water bill is in Dunstable town fc name at the address of the ground, i am not sure therefore who is responsible in law for the bill.
Is it a limited co or unicorporated association. What is your position in the club? you the club pay the bill?
Does it have committee and constitution?
The club is not limited it is run by a committee of volunteers and we have a constitution. i am currently the first team mananger for a period of the time in question i was acting chairman and in the past the club has paid all bills i have never personally paid a bill for the club.
it would be yes but i was concerned that they were contacting me at my home address and in the case the club could not pay it who is liable for the debt
The club is responsible for the debt which means all the members.
The reason they have written to you is to prompt action which has worked.
If they issued proceedings against you personally you would drag all the other members into the litigation which means in praqctice all the committee.
