To cut a long story short I ended up having to pay for 2 months rent due to my ex Flatmate being unable to pay.. I had to pay it to prevent us getting into arrears and getting into trouble with the landlord. She said she would give it back but I haven't received anything back as such. She owes me £500. I have bank statements and such to prove it came out of my account but the rent came out of a joint account we set up together.
Part of me doesn't want the hassle and fees but on the other hand I am livid she won't pay it back. Any suggestions are welcome.
