I'll keep it brief and hopefully someone will be able to help me.
I live in a houseshare with 8 people and we recently asked one of the tenants to move out as we all agreed we were not getting along as well as all of the other housemates. we sent a polite email and he responded saying not a problem and asked if he could have 1 month to find somewhere else to live and asked for extra time to pay bills and rent.we happily agreed.
So it comes to the day and he has already left in the morning before anyone was up.
He now basically is refusing to pay anything. I can cover his rent with his deposit so rent is not a problem. The £140 bills he has not paid however is a problem. He has NOT signed any sort of contract but has agreed via emails and texts that he owes the money.
Do you think I have a case to go to the small claims court?
Thank you in advance to anyone that can help with my situation.
