I was the responsible for the utility bills at my old place, where I shared with a few more people. I left the place a few months ago, and called southern electric and asked them for bills. So they sent me the bills, the bills said that they were actual (although I didn't tell them any readings), everything was paid, I appointed another guy as the responsible and I left.


Two weeks after I left, the guys at the old place receive a bill of about £200, which was completely ridiculous (It was for about 2 weeks, and the guys definitely didn't consume that much in that period). The appointed guy started complaining at them, and now, 3 months after I've moved out, I receive a bill of £400 for usage in the 7 months that I was responsible, and that I have to pay that ASAP.


I talked to them and they told me that they took readings immediately after I left (that's a lie) and they wouldn't admit directly that they were charging me based on very late readings, which I don't know when they're taken and if they're valid anyway. I don't know when they actually took readings, they wouldn't give me that information. And it might again be a lie.


Can I just not pay them? What rights do they have to charge me after I've officially left the flat? I think I had registered with them a long long time ago and had set up a direct-debit payment back then, so I'm afraid they'd charge that.
