Those gimps are trying to charge me for the period of "I've moved out, and no-one else has move in"

Tell me how to get them to go forth and multiply.

    Did you do a meter reading when you left and inform them you were leaving?

    oh yes

    Are they saying they haven't got these?

    No, they've just issued me with a bill.

    All can suggest is you ringing them really and explaining, you could send photocopies of when you're tenancy ended.

    bunch of bummers.

    What can they do if I don't pay?

    Nothing if you can prove you left the property

    Just write to them and say that you were not in the property, and that the owner of the property is liable.

    They will try and make you pay (their postal department, along with the postmen for debt collection agencies, must be the worst in the country) but just tell them to go forth and multiply. Don't even be nice about it.

    If you write to them and send a photocopy of the proof that you don't live there anymore, then they will probably just send a letter to the occupier of your old property. Just entitled 'The Occupier, 37 Curzon Road...'.

    In any case, just keep hold of any proof you have that shows you don't live there anymore, in case anyone ever needs a copy.
