The machine rental contract was for a period of 12 months and was with a limited company I owned. Half way through the contract we agreed verbally to change the lessor from the limited company to me personally. Payments were then made by them to my personal account and VAT was removed from the monthly charge. They now say that the contract states that changes to the contract should be in writing as stated in the contract and this change in lessee is not in writing and therefore they are not liable to pay me for six months rent they did not pay. They say they cannot pay the original limited company as it is no longer trading
