    Basically, my flatmate has moved her boyfriend in for a few months now. He has his own key, is very messy and doesn't pay any rent or bills towards the flat. He's not a student either and because the council don't know he's living there he doesn't pay any council tax. He says he can't afford to pay any bills and basically mooches off of his girlfriend! I don't know what to do, I've asked both of them for him to contribute something towards the bills but he's refused! Is the council tax thing serious? What could happen if he got found out? I don't want to go to the landlord about it but I'm not sure what else I can do

    if the landlord doesn't know about you should go to them about it and they can deal with it

    i don't think you would be evicted for it as she was the one who moved him in

    The landlord isn't going to evict anyone, they will just give your flatmate a warning, they won't risk losing the rent.

    Perhaps you could suggest that if he can't contribute financially then he takes on cleaning responsibilities to compensate? How do you pay bills? Can whoever pays them not just split it into four and ask this girl to pay half?
