Hi, I have left an abusive relationship one month into my joint tenancy with my ex partner. Since then, he has stayed in the property and not paid any rent. I was very honest with the landlord about my situation and that I had to move out for my safety.
I also explained I want to surrender my tenancy and told them I will not be paying my half of the rent. They did not seem too fussed at the time and I had to do most of the chasing to get updates whether the rent had been paid and if they were going to re-reference him so I could get off the tenancy agreement.
All they kept telling me was that I am jointly liable for the rent.
With all my chasing, they have finally told me months down the line that they have issued him with a Section 8 notice. He has refused to leave the property.
Once they get a court order to properly evict him, will I still be liable to pay any rent arrears?
