How you can tell us

Come online and tell us no more than 60 days after you’ve moved out. If you’ve not yet moved you can set up a reminder to come back on the day, or just after.

If you don’t want to tell us online, you can call using the numbers below. You can also use them if you moved more than 60 days ago.

Got a prepayment meter? Just ring us on the day you move.

What you need to tell us

Whether you’re telling us online or over the phone, we’ll need to know your:

  • Moving date
  • Old address
  • New address
  • Meter readings for your old home (taken the day you moved out)

And if you have a prepayment meter, we’ll also need your meter serial number and final meter balance.

Don’t forget – your ‘moving date’ is when you stop being legally responsible for the property. You may be able to find it on your contract or tenancy agreement if you’re not sure.

Students and landlords

If you’re moving between student homes, or you need to let us know about your tenant moving, it’s easy to do it online.

Just fill out our Landlords form, or give us the details of your student home – all you need is the info above.

Your meter readings

It’s important to note down your final meter readings on the day you leave your old home - it’s so we can make sure your final bill is accurate. If you need some help, just check out our guide to reading your meter.

And if you want us to supply your new home, we can help find the right tariff for you as well.
