Real Life MMD: Should I split the repayment?
Money Moral Dilemma: Should I split the repayment?
Last year another student and I moved in with a non-student. As students, we were exempt from council tax and the employed girl got a 25% single person discount. I reluctantly agreed to split the bill three ways, although I couldn't afford it. When I finished my course, we lost my student discount and I was unemployed so instead I claimed council tax benefit. It finally arrived just as I started a full-time job. My employed housemate now thinks I should share the benefit with the student as her costs went up, but I regard the cash as mine.
