Receiving a bill 1.5 years after leaving an address

Need some advice on this situation. I lived in a house end of 2011 for 12 weeks. The landlord told me thay'd sweep the chimneys, so I could use the fireplaces. But they didn't. So I had the heating on alot of the time. I also had a woodburner, which became damaged and the landlord refused to fix it. I had just bought £100 worth of logs, which I couldn't use. There were so many issues with the property, they freed me from my lease. The electricity bill was in the landlords name, they had my forwarding address and phone number, and yet, it took 1.5 years for a bill to reach me which the power company sent to a previous address, for some ridiculous sum of money. Does anyone know what my legal rights are with regards to paying the bill? Obviously I will dispute the sum, but after 1.5 years, is there anything I should know about legalities regarding how long it takes for the landlord or power company to bill me? Help appreciated, thanks.
