  1. Sorry, I don't mean to be vague but I am aware that companies may monitor these sites so I'm wary about divulging too much information that might help them to identify me. I live in rented social housing. There was definitely no survey carried out or any paper work left with me after the meter installation. Out of interest, if a supply isn't registered how can any company claim you have been using 'their' gas? I mean, could several companies legitimately make the same claim?
  2. I think it was installed by contractors working on behalf of one the large energy companies. One thing that was a bit strange was that after the meter had been installed, the same day, some salesman visited my property to get me to sign up with a different company to the one I thought had installed it. I told him I wasn't interested, but that might go some way into explaining why the meter was never registered with a supplier. And no, this is the first letter the company have sent me about suspecting there's an unregistered gas supply at the property.
  3. I don't think I'd be able to get any sort of record of my call. The letter asks for the MPRN sso if I give them that, they should also be able to tell there is no supplier. But then again, they obviously have their suspicions about that already since they've written to me saying they believe there is an unregistered gas supply at the address.
  4. No, it's not a new house, but the gas supply was new. Does this make any difference?
  5. ''You will be charged backdated up to 12 months ( backbilling rules)...'' Doesn't this rule only apply when you can show that you've made attempts to retify the situation? And as I mentioned, I only called them once to tell them I hadn't yet received a bill.
  6. Has anyone else got any knowledge or experience of this type o situation?
  7. ''ideally its your responsibility to phone the supplier when yo moved in an give readings and say you are going elsewhere or set up accounts with them.'' As I say in my opening post, according to the National Grid there is no supplier.
  8. I've lived in my property for a while now, and have never received a gas bill. I did phone up after a few months, as they they also supply my electricty which I had a query about so asked them when I could expect my first gas bill, and I got passed around a couple of departments, eventually spoke to someone who took my details and then put me on hold, and after what seemed like an eternity, eventually gave up and put the phone down. And no bills ever materialised. But now I've received a letter from them addressed to 'The Occupier', which says they 'notice there cou
  9. I attended this yesterday and it turned out to be a group session to inform us that at some unspecified date in the future we are going to be transferred over to Universal Credit from JSA, and what our obligations would be in order to continue to be eligible for benefits. There was no 'one-on-one' interview afterwards and no request to show any evidence of our recent jobsearch activities, although I made sure I was covered just in case, with print outs of job applications, a job interview confirmation and emails with recruitment agencies. So, I'm safe for now but really not looking forw
  10. Thanks for replying. I sort of feel that it's inevitable that they will put more pressure on me to look for work. Since I posted this thread I've heard from someone else that they are requiring people to attend JCP for 'supervised job searches', so there's a risk that by saying my internet access is intermittent, they'll require me to do that, or do it more frequently. Apparently some people have to go in daily, whilst others only attend weekly.
  11. I've been asked to attend an 'information session and interview' at my Jobcentre. It's a group thing looking at CVs, training and other opportunities to help people get back to work. Afterwards there's a one on one interview with an advisor to review your JSA and for you to give details about what you've done to find work. The letter goes on to say that if you can't show you're doing enough to find work 'a decision will have to be made concerning whether you are eligible for JSA'. It seemscurious it doesn't use the usual 'your claim may be referred to a decision maker etc' wording....
  12. Yes, this is what I was thinking but just wanted to find out if anyone knew anything definite.
  13. I've been told by the Jobcentre that I must attend a community work placement. However, I've just had a quick look through the Provider's Guidance for the scheme, and on p.5 I noticed the following paragraph: 1.14 JSA claimants referred to CWP will have agreed a Claimant Commitment (CC) with JCP which outlines what jobseeking actions a claimant must carry out in order to give them the best chance of getting into work.(my underscore for emphasis and clarity) https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/314475/community-work-placements-provider-guidance.p
  14. Thanks for your reply, Lapsed Workaholic. Yes, I do have a recognised medical condition which, as I said in my opening post, is managed with daily medication prescribed by a consultant. Without medication, I would get sick and die. Some time ago, I switched to ESA, however when I had the work capability medical assessment, I was deemed fit for work and thus forced to switch back to JSA. So, as things stand, I am officially considered able to work, however, as I also pointed out in my OP, I continue to have fluctuating health issues such as fatigue, flu-like symptoms and headaches.
  15. To what extent, though? If I call up and say I'm not feeling well, would that be acceptable, or would they expect to see official proof?
