Am I responsible for our old housemates rent?

In old school house-shares, everyone is responsible for the overall rent. You are just responsible for you.

Absolutely not. Lyvly will take all the financial responsibility. You are only ever responsible for the rent on your own room. 

All of your bills, housekeeping and consumables (washing-up liquid, toilet paper, kitchen roll, etc) are all included in your part of the rent. So don't panic when your current housemates leave. There is no switch over of names on the energy supplier or awkward conversations about who owns what.

Lyvly will work hard to find your next housemate, so you can just chill.
