Registering for Utility Bills and Council Tax
Once you move into your new property, you are resposible for payment of any utility or council tax bills. You should have taken Meter Readings on your Move In and will then need to register yourself with all the relevant utility providers and local Council for tax payments. If unsure please contact our Customer Service Team who can inform you of who the current utility provider is and what utilties you are responsible for.
As a general rule of thumb, you can expect that any utility bills are not included with your rental payment and you will be resposible for registering and paying for any bills that arise. The only main exception to this maybe communal heating and hot water services which do not have seperate meters for individual flats. You should check with the Property Host to confirm if any bills are included in the rent before renting the property.
In order to avoid being incorrectly billed, it’s important you make sure meter reading are taken when you move into the property and register yourself and the readings with the utility company as soon as possible. Please note that under the terms of your Tenancy Agreement this is part of a Tenant’s obligation when renting.
