Thank you for getting in touch
Company B are asking for £673.44
here a little further information
Company A that ceased trading did not contact me at all regarding company B taking over. after being unable to contact company A by telephone (telephone lines dead) June 2014 I sent the letter to company A 16 June 2014. no reply. Aug 2014 I telephone the bank directly to see what was happening and they stated they had sent an offer to Company A around May 2014, I tell the bank I cannot contact Company A so they send me the forms to accept their offer
Company B sent me a novation agreement in July 2014 which I did not agree to,
April 2015 Company B send me a letter to tell me the bank have made an offer and it is upto me whether I accept along with a bill for 18% (£673.44).
I feel company B have not worked in any way on my behalf looking at the timescales but state they are an agent of Company A.
please let me know your thoughts on this
I look forward to hearing from you
I have just checked and Company A (Astute Finance Ltd) are still on the companies house webcheck service as operating. The letter I sent to them in June 2014 stating that if they do not contact me within 14 days they are no longer acting on my behalf, to which I received no reply.
just checking but can they still chase me for their fee even though I haven't heard from them and they directly are not contactable?
