Money Moral Dilemma

Every week, the Money Tips email features a real-life Money Moral Dilemma (MMD for short). They're intended to encourage debate and, as such, they're usually among the most discussed threads each week.

Should our friend cover the deposit we lost after he pulled out of our house share?

Four mates and I were planning to move in together. We found a five-bedroom house to rent that we all agreed on, and paid a holding deposit of £530. A week later, one said he was going to continue living with his parents, so the rest of us could no longer afford the house as it would mean each paying £115 a month more. We lost the deposit, leaving each of us £106 out of pocket. Should we ask him to pay us all back?

You can find out what our MSE Forumites think and add your own two cents on the Money Moral Dilemma discussion thread. Heed the MSE Forum rules: keep it kind and keep it clean. Remember, there's a real person behind every Money Moral Dilemma.
