Hi guys, I just started into a venture with a partner, no partnership agreement signed yet as she is stalling with everything. Essentially, we've been in this for 6 weeks and it's already clear that it's not going to work. She has yet to pay a single bill on time, so I'm fronting everything, and hasn't done a single thing she said she would do on time. We've had 2 "final" meetings al ready where she has promised to improve her behaviour but it's then immediately forgotten about and things just don't improve. Essentially she has not done a single thing she said she would. As soon as money is involved she just disappears, doesn't respond to emails/texts etc, and comes up with an excuse to stall. The only bills she has paid are half the deposit on the property (lease in my name) and 25% of a bill for some joinery work carried out. She has also paid for some materials and equipment but that spend is fairly minimal. It is very clear that her not pulling her weight, and coming up with excuses such as "the bank was closed" for not paying the bills on time means that it's starting to hurt my business. I am tied into a 5 year lease, with break after 3, and I'm not willing to have this go under. Her total spend is approx £2600 (of which £1500'ish is in a deposit with the landlord's agency but she paid this through me). Obviously I have written records, texts emails, meeting minutes etc, of things we agreed..just don't have the partnership agreement. Just wondering if anyone can tell me on here before I speak to a solicitor; How much would I need to pay her to boot her out of the property and when would I have to pay this? Can I give her 4-6 weeks notice to find a new premises (I would think so as it's in my name) and do I then need to pay her the full £2600 back or can I deduct money from the £2600 for costs incurred?
