    Water Company Debt

    Water Company Debt 6th Jan 18 at 11:28 AM
    Hi I just signed up as Im stressed about an old water bill.

    I had a debt from a previous address which started off at around 3000 which I started paying off at 20 per week and Ive been doing that ever since and got it down to 1700 now.

    I recently moved address so I informed the water company I no longer lived at the address. I just received a letter this morning threatening further action if I don't pay the bill. I've never stopped paying the 20 a week and thats really all I can afford. So what do I do next? Can they take it further and give me a ccj even though Im still paying it off?

    Thanks for any advice
