I received a court claim form on the 7/11/18 (issue date 5/11/18) for unpaid water charges amount totaling £5,095 for the period 1/4/2007 to 31/3/2019 I have lived at the property for longer but never actually paid anything for water rates, due to being unemployed and not being to afford it. have been i receipt of yearly water bills and various uk search limited letters for amount owing. recently shulmans got involved and sent a few letters before court action. all of which i have ignored due to large debt amount. I have rung up northampton county court to verify if the claim form was send by them. they acknowledged the letter and told me the service date is 10/11/2018. Any advice on how to proceed would be very much appreciated as i'm unsure of what i can do and how to go about it. I rang southern water yesterday and enquired to my account and was told it had gone over to their litigation team. I have not rung their litigation team as of yet as i dont want to say the wrong thing. Thank you in advance for any help offered
Hello, I'm new to the forum, so not sure if this is the right place but I hope it is. I'm currently in a DMP and am really struggling to pay my bills. When I moved into my rented flat the agent mislead me to believe the water was included. This was eventually put straight after 5 years of being at the property and no water bill EVER being charged (even with the tenants and owners before me). Southern have been very helpful and are only charging us for 3 years (including the current) and we are in a special payment thing where every £1 we pay of they pay off another. Last week I found out that they are going to be putting meter in to all the properties on my street - I'm really concerned that this will increase my water bill - has anyone got an experience with the switch as such? I've already lowered my DMP in my last 2 reviews as my pay is not going up and the cost of living is going up. I am getting really anxcoious about it. Any response is much appreciated. Lilla
