From what I have read I would say that it is best to take your contract and policies etc to someone at Citizens Advice and get some help from them or ring the NCMA if you are a member.

Although, and don't take this as gospel but, a verbal contract is just that...a contract!!!

Hope it goes well for you

I would also call her bluff, you will have all your accounts to back you up with what she has been paying you!

Good luck
