Quote from: help on July 05, 2023, 09:09:31 PMFirstly I'm not a landlord but a tenant I desperately need help. I move out in under a week and me and the other tenant have not paid the water, electricity or gas bill for the whole year... I realised this a few months in and when setting up the energy provider was not asked to change the name. this is a brand new apartment built a few months before we moved in. I've now re read the tenancy agreement which states we must have changed the name on all bills... we would get letters to our address with a different name who we didn't recognise as our landlords name however it is. we knew him as a different name but I have double checked and it is the landlords. I have tried to go online and find out the bill but can't see it or get any information as I don't have the log in details or email connected to the bill payer (landlord) I have emailed however they always take 5 plus days to reply. I am staying in the property for another year and have already re signed an agreement with a different tenant however I am worried that the old tenant who isn't staying is going to not pay her half of the utility bills for the past year and they will chase me for all of it. We used to pay rent from one account but then broke up and have been paying separately for months now. she is egnoring my messages and planning a swift exit before the landlord finds out about the bills. she has a guarantor and so do i... we also each have a £500 deposit which will be taken from us because of the bills. My question is will my landlord demand the whole bills from me as I am staying on even though it's a two bed with two people having lived there so obviously the bills were supposed to be split between us evenly. Please help with any info you have as I cannot afford the water, gas and electric bill to be paid solely by myself for the whole year we have lived here and she will not respond to messages about the bills. thanks guys I'm stressing
