How are people liable on a Joint Tenancy
I signed a joint tenancy with two other people who already lived in the property. After six months one tenant stopped paying rent for two months and then moved out of the property. After her departure we filled the room and paid the full rent. The letting agents would not help us during this time and stopped responding to our emails and calls. We moved out of the property at the end of the tenancy and went our separate ways. 18 months later i recieved a letter saying I am responsible for the missing rent during the two months. Could you advise what I should do. Surely the house mate who is owing the money should be liable. How do the letting agents decide who is liable within a joint tenancy (i.e. who decided who is liable to pay between the tenancy). The tenantany had pasted problems and there was a very high turnover of tenants other than her over 3 years (over 12 people for 2 rooms).
