Hi I had a dispute with service charge. Credit controller now says she sent an email saying I had 24 hours to pay. I phoned the debt people and paid £400 whilst in dispute. There is a debt company handling the rent. I don't owe rent.

I phoned debt people re service charge. I phoned credit controller who said she didn't know that as debt company hadn't told her. I'm furious, upset. I think they were looking for an excuse to get rid of me to relet.

I've been unwell and couldn't get to office for awhile. Notice on office door 17 feb.

But that's DBS re rent. I don't owe rent. Surely they can't forfeit lease and relet on 24 hours notice, not tell me they were doing this (early February), till info today? I tried to find law. I think they wanted me out.
