    Default Roommate Moved Out with No Notice and Did Not Pay Last Two Months Utilities

    My question involves a roommate in the State of: Virginia

    I have a problem. It appears as if though my roommate has left today without notice and has not paid me last two months utilities. I have no way in getting in touch with her and I have no idea where to find them. The kicker is, is that they were not on the lease and we had no written agreement for rent and their name is not on the utilities. They've always paid for everything in cash month to month. Is there anything I can do to try and get my money for at least 2-3 months of utilities? Any help or feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    If you can find him/her, you can attempt to sue in small claims court. However, since you have absolutely no proof of any agreement at all, you may find the road a difficult one to travel.

    Cash is the best way to pay, no paper trail...

    Thank you guys. I'm not too sure what Virginia law is with my predicament. The total of what I'm owed is $200. Is this even worth pursuing?
