Hello for clarification - who is he if not a student? a friend of one of the others?
this was the tenant without the guarantor?
If you mean that it is the "non-guarantor tenant" who is saying that it's all your fault, tell him to get lost. He is dreaming.You are at liberty to be a guarantor of anyone as you wish or not.Whoever this person is, if that's the case, is an idiot. I can't be any more straight than that.Based upon what you told me, you have no liability whatsoever.Can I clarify anything else for you?I’m happy to answer any specific points arising from this.Please take a moment to look at the top right hand corner of the page and rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the screen. It’s important you use the rating service because that gives me credit. It doesn’t just give me a pat on the head! (Although there is an incentive scheme where the more five-star ratings I get, I do actually get a pat on the head! :-)) All you need to do is press Submit. Thank you.If you still need any point clarifying, I will still reply because the thread does not close.Best wishes.FES.
You have far more patience than I have.------------------I would cut it down to a couple of paragraphs simply saying that if he decided that he wanted to pay a deposit without having a guarantor in place, that was his choice.You didn't sign any guarantee for your own reasons and therefore you have no liability.You have taken legal advice and suggest that he does the same before going off issuing ill-advised Small Claims Court proceedings which you will not only defend but you will ask the judge to award costs against him on the basis of his completely unreasonable and misinformed behaviour.You have no offer to make.------------------If you want to make it longer and a bit more explanatory, there is nothing wrong with what you have done albeit a little wordy.
