Joint and Several clause versus payment invoice
I want to rent a room in a flat where 3 people are already living. The letting contract mention only the total rent and mention the flatmates as one tenant under a "joint and several" clause. Therefore I was worried that I could be possibly charged responsible with other tenant rent if they fail to pay. I ask the landlord about this. He told me that as only the money for the rent of my room was declared on the monthly payment invoice, it would be impossible for him to charge me with more money in the event of one tenant failing to pay the rent. I am really, not an expert so I was wondering if this argument stand in court in the event of such conflict ?
