Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
How long ago was this please?
Dont you have to keep documents for 6 years for HMRC tax purposes and under the Data Protection Act 1998?
Ok - but if its income then you would still have to declare it?Do you have ANY evidence that the property was rented during that period?The fee you pay for the question is a one off.
How much is the debt collection agency seeking off you?
Ok - I would just write to them and say you are not going to pay it.
If it went to Court it would cost them a lot more than £169 and indeed they would have to prove YOU were living at the address.
Its not for you to disprove that you were not. The onus would be on them.
But for such a small amount they wont do anything. It will cost them more to take it further.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
All the best. If I could ask you to rate my answer before you go today, by clicking on the 5 stars or happy face at the bottom of the screen, otherwise the site does not pay me for the time spent with you today. It is also an important part of the online process. Thank you in advance and good luck!
