Hello, My name isXXXXX and Tom has asked me to respond to your question because he is still learning English. In response to your question...The neighbor still has not given the landlord the money. I have explained your recommendation that he pay the landlord and afterwards take the matter up in small claims against the neighbor.
Tom also asked me to speak to his landlord to ask whether or not the neighbor had paid. Interestingly, the neighbor is very sympathetic to Tom's situation and she feels that Tom shouldn't have to pay anything since the neighbor has admitted that she was given the money by Tom to pay his rent. Apparently the neighbor is claiming that she took the money and transferred it into a money order but claims not to have receipt of the money order. The landlord plans to ask the neighbor once again to pay the money. I think he would have a strong case in small claims. Thank you so much for assisting Mr. Kubota.
