I want to be in control, currently my ex fiancee is still paying my water rates, phone and inter via DD. I believe this is a control thing as he brings it up when i mention child support, even though I'm only asking for £20 a week as i am taking them into account and everytime i talk about changing it all to my name he ignores me. (He still hasn't even read any of the child maintenance info i got or agreed in writing to anything and he drags his feet over payments and gave me less last month, he's a week overdue this month).
The water i am not fussed about i have nothing for that not a single leter i have no idea who the supplier is or anything, but if he stops paying I know id get a letter in the door anyway from em and i have savings to pay that so could sort it then, also it was in both our names when we moved in here so unless he had my name taken off when he quietly switched it to DD it should not be a problem.
The internet is his name only talk talk via DD i have looked into this and there's a form you can download we both need to fill out to transfer account to me......it might be possible to get him to do that hard to judge how much he will try to cling onto control.
The main thing is the BT line I really want to keep the number, you can't transfer a BT account it would be a new account and I'm sure I'd lose my existing number as i live in London and although it says you maybe able to keep your number past experience and everyone i know tells me thats not likely to happen.
So if i can get him to transfer line rental to talk talk or another company, will they transfer the line over to me and definitely let me keep my phone number as thats the most important thing to me. Especially now I'm claiming benefits and any changes can cause a delay in payment.
