someone elses council tax?
« on: Mar 11, 2009, 09:45:58 PM »
I lived in a house with two other people. One was a student and was excemt from council tax but me and the other both owed it. Due to a lack of money, this didn't get paid for a while and a fairly big bill grew. It got to about £600 when we moved out. The other person has now left the country and has decided to try and not pay for it. The council are demanding that I pay for the whole bill and are unwilling to split the debt even though they are aware that it is owed by two people and that one of them has left the country.

Is there anything I can do about this because they council are unwilling to offer any advice of help. Cheers.
