My question involves a roommate in the State of: WV
My roommate has had trouble paying the utilities over the last 4 months or so. The utilities are in her name, but she has been using the money I gave her for utilities, for other things, and has not been paying the utilities. So I started paying the utility companies directly for my half. She has agreed to move out, but has a rather large balance on all of the utilities. We have no type of agreement on how the utilities should be paid. Am I in anyway libel for these past due utilities? Since she is moving out, will it be possible for me to open a new account (even if she refuses to call the utility companies and close her account)? We are currently both on the lease, but she will be signing the full lease off to me.
