Hi, thank you for your question. Please confirm:
-Whose name is ***** ***** and mortgage in?
-Are you married to your partner?
-Whose name are the utilities in?
-Has there been any formal agreement regarding contributions to the household outgoings, if so what?
Thanks for confirming. Given that there is agreement you would have grounds to pursue a court application for any non-payment by him, but of course this should be the final course of action. Initially you should bring it to his attention, preferably in writing and request he covers any arrears and continues to make good on your contributions agreement.
For your information, legally as everything is in joint names if there are arrears the companies can pursue you both either jointly or individually for the arrears.
I hope this assists you. If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for your question without a positive rating. Thank you
