Frequently asked questions
When do I need to tell you I’m moving home?
You can tell us you’re moving up to 7 days before you're due to move. If your moving date is more than a week away, please pop back nearer the time.
What information do I need?
To let us know you're moving, you will need:
- your current address
- your new or forwarding address
- your moving date
- your contact phone number and email address.
If you’re a new customer and you want to set up a direct debit at the same time, you will need:
- your account number and sort code.
I've told you I'm moving, what happens next?
Once you've completed a form to tell us you've moved, we'll take care of the rest.
We’ll sort out your account, accurately calculate your meter readings and we'll email you to let you know when everything's sorted.
I'm selling my second property, how do I remove it from my account?
You can use the close an account form to let us know you're selling a second property.
When you get to section 4 and the form asks for your new address, please enter your forwarding or permanent address. When asked "Will you pay the bill at your new address?", select "no" if you already have an account set up for this address.
I’ve already moved and haven’t told you yet, what do I need to do?
It’s best to let us know as soon as you move in. But if you’ve forgotten, and you moved within the last 3 months, you can use our online forms. If your move was longer than three months ago, you'll need to talk to us.

I'm going to be responsible for two properties at the same time, which form do I need?
If you're going to be responsible for two properties at the same time - for example, if you're completing the purchase of a new home before you sell your old one - you'll need to use our new customer form to tell us when you're getting the keys to your new home. When you're no longer responsible for your old property, let us know by filling in the closing an account form.
How do I get a copy of my bill?
If you've told us you're moving, there's no need to do anything else. We'll send you a new bill.
