Hi All

 

I need some help/advice on my rights with British Gas Business.

 

I have a small business (Pub) and have ran up a gas bill of £1100 over the last 4 years.

 

I recently (about 4 weeks ago) paid £500 off this bill leaving a total of £640 now owing.

 

However in the meantime British Gas Business applied for a warrant of entry and successfully entered my business while I was not there and removed the gas meter.

 

They now say I have to pay the £640 owing for gas used, £300 to re-install the meter and £1000 bond which will all need paid up front before I can have the gas meter installed again.

 

The £1000 bond will be credited back in 12 months if I keep payments up.

 

Obviously I cannot afford this as my business is almost on its knees but I also desperatly need heating and hot water.

 

My question is

 

'if I pay my bill (£640) so I owe them nothing,

can I just go to another supplier as I am out of contract with British Gas as I've already broke their T&C's.

 

By saying to me I have to pay this bond and installation fee they are assuming I'm staying with them, but I want them out !

 

Please help. What are my rights ??

Nothing to stop you speaking to other suppliers, but no meter may be problem?
