Water bill for un-metered empty property

in Water bills

Looking for a little clarity as trying to reduce costs.

We were selling our flat last year, only it fell through.

In the process we moved to a new house and the buyer of the property messed us about so much the flat was empty for 4 months and then they pulled out.

We have managed to rent for now to try and recoup expenses and will re-sell in new-year.

I have received a water bill of £140 for the period it was empty.

Is it possible to not pay this bill, or have big reduction as property was empty and does not have a meter. We have proof of vacant property with solicitor during the period.

Thank you very much.
