Hi there

 

Someone on the debt board suggested I post in here regarding a debt I apparently have to British Gas.

 

The debt relates to my previous address.

 

I moved into the property Dec 2009.

 

Tried on numerous occasions to find out who the gas supplier by phoning the national grid helpline etc.

 

At first I was told that the property wasn't listed.

 

Eventually after going around in circles and phoning several different numbers I was told it was British Gas who were the supplier.

 

I called British Gas on numerous occasions to ask that they set up the gas account in my name as I was the new tenant.

 

British Gas stated they were not the supplier.

 

Cue going around in circles

- being told by the national grid helpline that it was British Gas, to be told by British Gas it was not them.

I never ever received a gas bill from any supplier for the 2 year period I was in the property.

 

I moved out of the property in Jan 2012.

 

A few months down the line I started receiving letters from a solicitor (?) claiming to be acting on behalf of British Gas to recover a debt of approx £800 for gas at my last property.

 

This is despite never receiving a gas bill from them in the entire time I lived in the property.

 

Any advice?

I think they can only claim for 12 months back which is to November last year!

correct.

 

if they [british gas] have never sent a bill this applies.

It is LCS - Utility Investigations

 

They haven't written for a good few months, the last letter I have from them is dated June 2012.

 

Oh and they are trying to claim for gas used from Sep 09 to Mar12. I didn't move in until dec 09, and moved out Jan 12.
