This is a rather random situation and hence I was not sure about which section to post on.
So, I was living with my landlord for around 6 months, having rented the room though an agency. After those 6 months his house was repossessed and hence I had to move out.
Found another place, and a few months down the line I received a letter from Southern Waters charging me for a water bill for the address where I’d be living previously!!! Two weeks later, after I’d forgotten to contact the company explaining my situation, I received another letter regarding the same issue, but this time from a debt collector.
I obviously do not intend to pay for it and having contacted the debt collectors and explained my situation I was told that all I needed was to send them a copy of my letting contract, which even if I do not find it I am sure I can get it from the letting agent.
I am just wondering what anybody else in position would do, as my former landlord obviously committed an act of crime against me.
Thanks for your attention,
