    westcot credit services 21st Mar 06 at 2:42 PM
    Not sure if this is on the right thread but would appreciate some advice if possible.

    I own a flat in London which I let out. it was previously let to my ex-boyfriend and another tenant. he had sky tv in his name from when I lived there with him and wanted to keep it so I let him do so. He moved out in September and the current tenant stayed on and a new tenant arrived. In about November the tenants were messing me around by refusing to stay in for appointments and the like for gas and electric etc and I couldn't attend as I no longer live in the UK. I decided to instruct a management agent who charge a fee and so I increased their rent and stopped paying for the sky (which I had paid for previously as part of the rent).

    i spoke to sky who said I could not cancel the contract as it was not in my name. By this time I had no contact details for the ex and he had also left my flat in a right state with things broken and damaged etc. I asked Sky what I should do and they told me to cancel the direct debit, that a couple of letters would go to my ex but if he didn't reply then nothing further would happen.

    That's what I did.

    I've now had an email from my ex saying that Westcot have been instructed and he owes £76 and asking me to pay it. I don't want to as as far as I was concerned it was cancelled.

    What should I do?
