    Repo'd Flat & Electricity Bill

    Repo'd Flat & Electricity Bill 19th Oct 11 at 2:47 PM
    Hi All,

    Need a bit of help...

    My flat was repo'd prior to me going BR. I called the electricity company on the day I moved out and gave them the meter readings and the bill was included in my BR.

    However I am now receiving Debt Collector letters and when I called to advise I went BR they stated that I am still responsible for the bill from the date of my BR until the house is sold, even though It was repo'd and I had moved out prior to my BR. The bill they have sent is for 200 and they said it was an estimate and that I needed to give them meter readings to confirm how much I owe. I said I thought that this was ridiculous as I no longer lived there and that I don't have access to the property to get them up to date meter readings. I think the estate agent selling the property must have turned the power back on and according to the debt collectors I have to pay!!!

    Has anyone any experience of this???
