My roommate has NEVER paid any utilities in the two years weíve been living at our apartment. Iíve asked hundreds of times, and she keeps saying she'll pay it later. Well now I am moving out, and she is refusing to pay it all together.
My question: Upon initially moving in, we verbally agreed on paying the utilities 50/50. About 6 months later, while in one of our many fights over her paying utilities, she declared paying 50/50 on the electricity was unfair to her because I was home more often, using it more. So I begrudgingly agreed to her paying me only 30%, verbally, in hopes that she would start paying the bills. Never saw a dime. About a month ago I gave her a print out of the utilities over 2 years (not including the last month which I havenít got yet), with the electricity at 30% and cable/internet at 50%.
Now that this has to go to small claims, can I just print up a new bill for all utilities 50/50? I know in court she is going to try and claim we agreed on 30%, and bring the first print out I gave her, and not the second one. The only reason I agreed to 30% was in hopes of getting paid, which I didnít. What do you think my best option for winning this is?
