How do I change utility companies?
When you leave your previous property make sure you inform the utility providers, so they can close your account and settle the bill – always remember to take final meter readings when you move. At your new property, if it is not a new build, the previous owners will have done the same and informed their existing suppliers. If so, you’ll be placed on a standard tariff with these companies and may not get the best deal so it’s worth shopping around and switching energy providers as soon as possible.
The whole process can seem daunting and like you’re drowning in paperwork, but you’ll get there if you stay on top of it at each stage of the process.
