Disputes with contractors and eye watering debt collection fee?

hi. you do not have to pay late payment charges if you are not paying because you dispute the claim for money (and you can only have charges claimed where the contract you signed up to allows that (and even then they need to be reasonable) or they are in accordance with the late payment act).
