    Utility supplier / bills

    House has been let back to back continuously for years through Agent however now empty since 14th September.

    Should I not have received letters from the utility suppliers addressed to the occupier by now?

    Have the meter readings from when I got house back so not sure what I need to do as I do not know who the ex. tenant was with?

      You need to contact the supplier and give them the meter readings and make sure you're on an appropriate tariff.
      Don't wait for the tenant to do it.
      When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
      Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

          You (YOU!) should have communicated with all utility companies & council tax with dates, names and meter readings where relevant. File photos of meter readings with date-stamps.

          Confirmed in writing/email if wise.

          For all you know previous occupants wrote to suppliers/council saying they mmoved out earlier, wrong meter readings.

          If you didn;t, you are the one with the problem. Remember, council tax is just about the only bill you can end up in jail for.

            Tenancy ended 14/09/20 and tenant handed keys back to Agent.

            I have the third party inventory report dated 15/09/20 that the Agent arranged with all meter readings and photos of meters.

            I received a council tax bill for remaining period sent to my home address (assume ex. tenant gave details).

            Assumed that I would get letters addressed to "the occupier" for gas, electric and water but nothings arrived.

            Will get on the phone tomorrow.

              'phone then confirm in writing/email (for when there's an argument some months later.... hopefully doesn't happen...)

                  water don't really feel the need to charge you most of the time when vacant, if it's only a few unit they are not worried about the days standing charge (from my experience)

                  Elec/Gas will want every day of standing charge

                  Council even stricter, but you may get a couple of months free depending on concil...

                  All the best
