I have a new tenant moving in to my property - what do I need to know and do?
If you're a landlord or letting agent and there's a change of tenancy, you can tell us about it online or over the phone.
Along with your contact details, we just need to know:
- The date they stopped being responsible for the energy
- A forwarding address for their final bill
- Their closing meter readings
And if you've moved a tenant in, we'll need to know:
- Their name and contact details
- The date they started being responsible for the energy
- Their opening meter readings
If there's a prepayment meter at the property, please call us. We'll need to know:
- The current credit or debt on the meter -
- The 'Meter Serial Number' - you'll find this on the front of your meter next to the barcode. It will look something like: X00L12345
And remember, the landlord is responsible for the energy bills while the property is vacant.
When you've got this information to hand, please call us we're here to help.
0800 316 8558 or 0330 100 8658
